NFT art world in Miami is booming

Posted on 4 May, 2022 at 7:50

NFT art world in Miami is booming

The month of April 2022 was recently declared the Miami Tech Month by the major of the city Mr. Francis Suarez. It was interesting to see how Miami became an attraction for many people from all over the world who are interested in crypto currency.

We were lucky to have a Miami NFT week convention that brought knowledgeable people from all over the world to give speeches about NFTs, digital art, NFT projects and investments in art. Will this NFT week become an annual event like Miami Art Week? Like most of the international visitors were saying lately, Miami croud is totally open to having any cryptocurrency conversation without freaking out.

The crypto art or NFTs is slowly becoming an important asset, not only for artists but also for cryptocurrency investors. The idea of globalization is fascinating because before the art sales were only specific to local costumers and maybe some online buyers. One of the most valuable things that we learned from these intensive weeks in April is that "art" will remain important even in these technologic times.

The conventional art will still be appreciated but the Nfts will be an interesting acquisition for the new generation. Also, the new era of crypto art comes with a community integration when a bunch of NFT projects will benefit the community. Looking forward to have an exciting Miami Art week and Art Basel season 2022 with energizing Crypto artworks.

Posted on 1 November, 2020 at 18:42
1000 Kites during Miami Art Week 2020

We normally think of kites as playful objects for our entertainment, consider alternative uses that could elevate our consciousness, raise awareness and shift perceptions. As a collective action 1000 Kites aims to provide an opportunity to spark dialogue and gain perspective on the intersecting crises affecting humanity and reflect on past, present, and future.

1000 Kites seeks artists to submit a kite as an art object to participate in an outdoor activation taking place in Miami Beach, December 3-6, 2020. Artists are invited to make their own kites and encouraged to experiment and play with the boundaries and significance of this unique object as an art form.
We are currently holding an Open Call for submissions to join the catalog.

Founded by Paola Lopez & Pia Cruzalegui, the first activation of 1000 kites will take place during the days of Miami Art week 2020. Further details on the project are forthcoming as we continue to develop our vision. Stay tuned! For more info, visit and connect with us on Instagram @1000_Kites

LUCA solo exhibition June 2019

Posted on 2 June, 2019 at 22:03
The Directed Art Modern is pleased to present L.U.C.A, a solo exhibition by Miami artist Khotan Fernandez.


 L.U.C.A: Last Universal Common Ancestor, experiments with the use of different materials, including glass, resin, paper, tile, wax, ink, and cut-out drawing enhancing the idea that it is through the many differing components, when seen together mimics the start of being, and how the world today and the individual are comprised of many elements, which ultimately unites us all. The collection also involves a metamorphic vision between mediums, in which sculptural objects appear to be transforming, or evolving from something they were, or into something completely new, mesmerizing the viewer in the process. Speaking on his work for the exhibition, Fernandez states: “I chose the subject matter because of the of the freedom it allows,” the freedom to explore from the beginning to the Now.

Fernandez is a confident and often philosophical artist often delving into the metaphysical, here though, his approach is ontological as he explores being and the forces of life. To find the answers to his questions on existence, and the forces of life he looks beyond Western Society and draws from horizons of cultures of the Other and the sciences.  This mystical ancestral being, the originator of our reality is on display from June 6th to June 26 that The DAM’s gallery in Little River.
