Amid the dozens of glitzy art parties and brunches that are always part of the packed calendar during the week of Art Basel in Miami Beach, artist and fashion photographer Raphael Mazzucco’s installation of paint-splattered, large-format photographs in the lobby of the Delano Hotel in South Beach drew a steady stream of viewers. Mazzucco’s work was on view there during the week of the fairs as the hotel’s featured artist.
And Rosenbaum Contemporary, in association with LuvnGrace Entertainment, New York’s Spring Studios, and the Morgans Hotel Group, fêted Mazzucco with a party on Friday December 6.
Former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson was there playing host, though the new, brown pixie-hairstyle she sported was decidedly less visible than her usual long blond locks. Howard Rosenbaum, whose gallery represents Mazzucco worldwide told ARTINFO that 80 percent of the 15 works on offer sold at prices ranging from $35,000 to $55,000 during the show. Other attendees who turned out to celebrate Mazzucco and his work included Lionel Ritchie, Emily Smith, and Lady Victoria Hervey, all of whom were also treated to a performance by Theophilus London.
