FOUNTAIN ART FAIR, MIAMI 2013 – THE BOAT

13Dec2012

This was our second instalment with the Fountain Art Fair in Miami, and an exercise in nautical kick-assery.

In search of an a unique surface to draw upon, we found this boat in a nearby impound lot. Attempting to drag it with a half dozen big men and some chain was a complete failure (who knew those things were so damn heavy!). We then leashed it to the back of the most evil looking enormous pickup truck ever seen, and pulled it a block down the street, leaving behind it a heavy white and blue streak.

Once on site, we spent the next few hours attempting to raise the boat 2 1/2 feet off the ground on wood supports, involving mad sweat and an undefeatable will to get the job done.  The rest is history!
