The Confidante Miami Beach showcases Art Basel

The Confidante Miami Beach, a playful oceanfront oasis located in Miami Beach’s popular Mid-Beach neighborhood, is pleased to announce its 2019 Art Basel programming featuring a partnership with renowned Miami artist David Le Batard (Lebo). Guests can expect a lineup of art-centric events, a custom postcard mailing station, art-inspired cocktails and new artwork throughout the hotel, including two exclusive outdoor murals by Lebo and his hand-selected group of up-and-coming local artists – photographers Gavin Macgenzie and Tanya Manfrediz and visual artists King Redd, Carlos Solano and Ramon Mas.

As a native to Miami Beach, Lebo brings the vibrancy and culture of the magic city to life through the two exclusive murals at The Confidante Miami Beach. Both vibrant works of art on display on the first and 10th floor are a collaboration between Redd and fellow muralists Lebo, Carlos Solano and Ramon Mas. Each artist brings their own touch to the murals from Carlos’s positive messaging to King Redd’s tattoo artistry background and Ramon’s juxtaposition of Comic, Street and Hip Hop Cultures throughout his artwork.
