Awake in Miami
► ABOUT //
Mikael B. and the non-profit organization Lonely Whale with actor Adrian Grenier in the lead, known from Entourage, has teamed up to focus on minimizing plastic pollution in the oceans. For Miami Art Basel they opened the doors to the big solo show, ‘Awake’, where Mikael shows his latest works inspired by Lonely Whale and their work.
All profits from the exhibition went exclusively to Lonely Whale in addition to a limited print release that has been put up for sale here on the website to raise more funds and awareness for the organization. SLS Brickell, who housed the exhibition, had also given Mikael the honor of decorating their iconic Philippe Starck sculpture, depicting an duck, which was revealed on the opening night to the joy of a large crowd of attendants.
The idea for this cooperation comes from Mikael’s great love for the oceans. He has dived and snorkeled for as long as he can remember. The name of the exhibition ‘Awake’ is therefore also a call for action for us all to start taking responsibility for preserving our oceans. That’s why it felt natural to collaborate with Lonely Whale as Mikael for a long time has wanted to use his art to make a difference in the world.
