Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Whitewaller is back and ready to bring you all you need to know for the Miami fairs. All week-long we’ll bring you “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, eat, and drink. Next up, artist Enoc Perez.
“I mostly go to Miami in December during Art Basel. It is alway busy and fun. The first time I went was in 2007 because I was having a show at MOCA North Miami. On that first trip I discovered two places that I go back to every year since. One is Casa Tua and the other Joe’s Stone Crab. The thing is that there are no places like them anywhere else. The art fair is the excuse; going to these places is the point. More recently, I discovered the strip steak at the Fontainebleau, and that was awesome. And for some reason I always end up at Nobu during my stay, and that of course is very good, too.”
“For me the best thing about Miami is that everyone is beautiful and looking perfect. Two things I’m not. So I love just sitting at the beach or poolside at The Standard or I go to the museums, all of them, and the private collections when I can. There are a few galleries that I visit, like Bill Brady Gallery.”
“I like going to the Pérez Museum because I feel as if I’m walking into my own place with the Pérez name and all, even though they don’t own any of my work.”
“Many things I love about Miami. I love being able to speak Spanish everywhere. I love being able to eat really good Cuban food anywhere. I love how women wear very little clothing there, just wonderful. And last but not least, I love that Miami is very cosmopolitan. I hear every language being spoken on the street, and that makes me feel at home, always.”
