During Miami's famed Art Week this year, local artist Marcus Blake launches his first official solo exhibition titled, "Pure Imagination”, a collection of never before seen canvas works with over one hundred pieces. On display, the artist has chosen to reveal paintings from his self-dubbed method, “Tapenology”, a series of vibrant geometrical visions and a few from his “Sworld” method of painting and spraying. Both of his original styles have nearly blanketed the entirety of Little Haiti in giant mural form, but this show will share his more subtly abstract acrylic paintings on canvas, as well as furniture, and multi-media installations. His art show is not listed as an officially scheduled satellite event for Art Basel Miami Beach, nor for Miami Art Week, and for a very personal reason.

In order to highlight his cherished neighborhood, the Jamaican-born, Miami-raised artist has chosen to display his works for sale at his expansive private home, a two story 1920's house in Little Haiti with a double wide garage that doubles as his art studio, all hidden in an urban paradise. His artist-compound sits on a half acre sized lot nestled underneath a plush grove of live oaks, natural gardens, and green spaces; a place he and his tribe of artist cohabitants have affectionately dubbed, Little Bohemia.

“The Pure Imagination Art Show” will take place daily from 2:00 pm till 10:00 pm throughout it's week-long duration, Nov. 30th – Dec. 4th. Libations, local food vendors, and a variety of live local music and performances will take place nightly, along with plenty of areas to sit and admire, sip and observe, mingle and swirl with other guests in Marcus's world of pure imagination. Little Bohemia sits directly across the street from the hotly contested block of Churchill's.
