Nick Cave | Art Basel Miami 2012 Series [1]

This year's Art Basel Miami was its eleventh edition and its representation of African American, Carribean Diaspora, and African Diaspora artists is described as the best in Basel's history. In this post series, I present some black artists featured at Art Basel Miami 2012.

Nick Cave is a fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist best known for his Soundsuits which are colourful, often whimsical wearable fabric sculptures. Typical materials used in the sculptures include twigs, dyed human hair, plastic buttons, beads, sequins, and feathers.
