I received an email from a very Danish and adorable sounding publicist about a little something that happened during Art Basel, a month late. But nonetheless, there’s a new artistic addition to Miami up on the pool deck of the SLS Brickell. It’s, well, a very jazzed up duck. Photos and a ‘making of’ video, this way. >
I’m contacting you as I have seen you earlier have written an article about Philippe Starck and SLS Brickell hotel. The international known artist Mikael B has in collaboration with SLS decorated the Philippe Starck sculpture on the rooftop, which I thought maybe would be interesting to cover. Mikael B, who is originally from Denmark, had a solo exhibition at the SLS Brickell during Miami Art Basel and the asked him to paint their infamous Starck duck sculpture and unveil it in front of the many attendees.
Mikael is available if you would like to do an interview or have some quotes from him or if you would like to talk with someone from the hotel. Attached you’ll find photos and video from the process, please let me know if you need anything else.—Pernille
