Art Basel ::: Day One

And so it begins...

Our first stop last night was a preview of Kris Knight's "Smell the Magic" Exhibition, in collaboration with Gucci's Creative Director Frida Giannini, at Spinello Gallery in the Design District.

Kris Knight is a Canadian born painter who's art explores ethereal sexual/asexual beauty. His idyllic blend of colors on figurative paintings remind you of 18th century romantic impressionism. Kris Knight's paintings inspired Gucci to collaborate with him on a reworking of the iconic Flora Gucci print. Creative Director, Frida Giannini, applied his updated Flora patterns for the upcoming Cruise 2015 season.






The exhibition is organized from the perspective of Latin American artists and their view of abstraction.
