Naturel Art Basel Miami 2014

Naturel for Crooks & Castles at Art Basel Miami 2014

Passing by him on the street, one might mistake Naturel for a rapper, as his aurora mirrors the trendsetters-turned-rhymesayers that frequent Downtown Manhattan. The assumption wouldn’t be too far off, as he once used the profits from his artwork for studio time. Now Naturel infuses his passion for music into his art, resulting in pieces that evoke pop art with an emphasis on hip hop culture.

After teaming up for a 3-part limited edition collection last year, Crooks & Castles is partnering up with Naturel once again for Art Basel Miami. Mass Appeal is proud to sponsor the event, which will feature sets from Vashtie, Bamski, Heroes x Villains, and The Umbrella Boys.

Naturel’s story is just beginning, and we’re looking forward to revealing what’s next.
