RECAP: Alec Monopoly & Samsung At Art Basel Miami Beach (PHOTOS)

Art and technology was the theme two nights ago when Samsung and street artist Alec Monopoly launched Man Overboard, a show featuring a new series of work by the artist at the Annual Art Basel Miami Art Fair which we skipped this year.

Monopoly, who paints characters associated with wealth, created a piece which showcased the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch on Monopoly boardgame character Mr. Moneybags while his work was shown on screens.

Guests in attendance included actor Stephen Dorff, recording artist Veronica Vega, Alexa Echeverria and Lisa Hochstein from the Real Housewives of Miami, Josh and Matt Altman from Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing, and various street artists including Gregory Siff, Hebru Brantley and Santlov.
