Congress South Beach’s Pre Art Basel Warm Up with Artist Krave & Photographer Tomas Loewy

 

The Congress South Beach kicked-off Art Basel Miami Beach Week with a soiree atop of the hotel’s oceanfront rooftop pool and bar. The hotel unveiled a new mural by renowned local artist, Daniel Fila, better known as “Krave” and showcased the bright, colorful floating canvasses of famed photographer Tomas Loewy in the hotel’s pool. Inspired by the hotel’s Art Deco décor, Daniel Fila created “Sunbather II”, a mural inspired by his signature pin-up style.  The mural will stay up provisionally and will be visible by passersby on Ocean Drive.  Loewy’s floating canvasses were influenced by the Burning Man Festival which he has documented through photographs and film since 2004. Guests enjoyed the 360-degree ocean and skyline views from the hotel’s rooftop and sipped complimentary cocktails by Deep Eddy Vodka.  Photo Credit:  Janine Cruz Morales
