Art Miami opens on the 29th of November.
There will be a celebrity presence, with the debut of new works from Academy Award winner Adrien Brody at New York’s Benrimon Projects. The actor, who has shown at a couple of other art fairs, has received rave reviews from the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brooke Shields, and Robert De Niro.
Elton’s lyricist for nearly half a century is likewise expected to be an Art Miami highlight with a booth at New York’s Waterhouse & Dodd.
Bernie was recently asked about his art, including how he came around to showing and selling his pieces.
He explained that a ”small group of an inner circle” knew he was a visual artist for many years, primarily a painter.
”You have to start somewhere, and I had a number of privately arranged shows. The selling part has evolved, as that was not my initiap purpose. Eventually, my art was discovered outside of my other career.”
