With programming including exhibitions featuring original paintings by world-renowned contemporary street artists Skyler Grey, BNS, DAIN, Lasso and Alec Monopoly, sculptures by LEGO artist Nathan Sawaya, Fred Avella and Surfboards by Andy Warhol, Avant Gallery is a feast for the senses. Their new LaMuse Café was conceptualized as a tribute to iconic muses who once served as a source of inspiration to some of modern history’s master artists, and select dishes on the menu are named after muses and artists, such as the Mona Lisa Art Tart and the Picasso Salad. “Miami has been my home for the past 15 years and I love having the opportunity to contribute culturally and now culinary, especially in the Downtown/Brickell area where Avant’s flagship is located,” says Owner Dmitry Prut. “Having been raised in New York, I can’t help but see certain parts of Manhattan in our own exciting neck of the woods here. And maybe even a little glimpse of cosmopolitan Hong Kong.” He recently expanded the gallery to Aventura Mall, as well as internationally to Dubai at the Four Seasons. There are also talks of opening in NYC early next year. This December, it will make its debut at the Art Miami main fair;
