I walked Art Basel Miami Beach 2011 art fair while the VIPs where not there yet and it was a very cool experience as I was almost alone walking the show and without the inconvenience of the thousands of people who rush to the art fair. Later on I saw P Diddy and Julian Schnabel walking like they were on a shopping mall. See here a selection of artworks I found during my walk in the art fair.

Banksy Defaced statue of a Priest is a new addition to The Walker Art Gallery collection.

The renowned graffiti artist has sawn off the face of an 18th Century replica stone bust and glued on a selection of bathroom tiles. The resulting ‘pixellated’ portrait is entitled ‘Cardinal Sin’ and is believed to be a comment on the abuse scandal in the Church and its subsequent cover- up.

“I’m never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one”

– Banksy
