Design District Highlights Typoe, Commissioner
As Miami multidisciplinary artist and Commissioner’s first commissioned artist opens his first solo show in Miami in five years, “Tired of Eating Pigeon’s” Miami Design District goes inside the mind of the artist in a conversation between him and Commissioner founder Dejha Carrington.
From the article titled, TYPOE’S “TIRED OF EATING PIGEONS” IS SO MIAMI
The namesake of the exhibition, “Tired of Eating Pigeons”, comes from an unknown collaborator who threw away a germanely etched piece of cardboard. Described by the artist as a way of taking the temperature of the times, he uses his work to bridge gaps of understanding between people, explore humanity, and inspire connection.
In addition to his solo show, Typoe was recently featured in the Miami Design District's new ad campaign featuring local influencers throughout the city and is Commissioner’s inaugural artist. Commissioner is a new subscription program that brings together emerging collectors and local artists around the stories unique to Miami and connects to the community with lower barriers of entry.
On the heels of his many projects that also include Brightline and SoHo Beach House, we asked Typoe a handful of questions about his upcoming show and how the MDD uniquely informs his work. Read more on the Miami Design District blog.
