2017 - 2019

Balagan means chaos in Hebrew. Chaos is an integral part of life for most artists. But how can one succeed without an organized portfolio, clear connections, and a solid understanding of one's finances? I founded the BALAGAN Art Space to help emerging artists showcase their work coherently and network efficiently in Miami's only commission-free gallery and creative commune in the art district of Wynwood.      www.balagan.cc
 

THE CAMPAIGN
MIAMI 2017

To launch the Balagan Art Space & Creative Commune I created a campaign and website

that addressed the core frustrations of many emerging artists and the distortions of the art market. To set the tone to the liberal and rebellious environment I was creating, I chose a provocative language and mixed it with a simplistic millennial pink square as a reference
to Instagram and the popularity of pink flamingo imagery in Miami.
