Eden Fine Art is bringing Alec Monopoly to this year’s Art Basel Miami in style! The famed graffiti artist Alec Monopoly again plans to wow the international audiences at Art Basel with the most exclusive party of the week! Check out his collection here!
Amongst the excess of artistic inspiration from across the globe at Art Basel Miami, Alec Monopoly stands out of the crowd. His graffiti-style art alone draws the viewer in with its vibrant color schemes and iconic characters, that he uses to portray the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Apropos to the Miami scene Monopoly sets his painted characters atop yachts, flying helicopters, or coming out the bank with overflowing bags of money. Images extraordinarily reflective of the current scene leading up to Art Basel.
Alongside Eden Fine Art, Monopoly will be welcoming art collectors and special guests to a private waterside mansion in South Beach to celebrate in style. Last year Monopoly arrived stepping off of a yacht, showed off his skills spray painting sports cars, and danced with other celebrity guests.

Monopoly’s artistic approach to his walls, as well as his canvases, is bright and fun, a contrast to the grim slant typical of street art. His choice of protagonists is striking and reminiscent of classic aspirations of the American dream, he merges familiar icons with his social commentary, striking a chord with the onlooker. This celebrity artist is now returning to Miami for another week of painting and partying at the most exciting art fair in the US, Art Basel.
Art Basel Miami is expected to bring in over 77,000 visitors to the city. All ready to purchase their next artistic masterpiece, party with the artists, and enjoy the sunshine while sipping on Veuve Clicquot.
