Zapata dominates Art Basel Miami
To catch a glimpse of the unveiling of Celebrity Artist DOMINGO ZAPATA's "Dangerous Things" and get a peak of the VIPs in attendance, a whirlwind frenzy is the only way to describe the entrance to ZAPATA's biggest show yet!
More than 1,000 people crowded the door of the Delano Hotel Saturday night, Dec. 3, 2011, to attend what is being called the "HOTTEST PARTY" at Art Basel Miami 2011. Roberto Cavalli enjoyed the event from his private bungalow, while Billionaires like Ron Burkle, Hollywood celebrities such as Adrien Brody, Emmy Award winning Director Niels Arden Oplev, Victoria Secret Model Ana Beatriz Barros were just a few of celebrity guests amongst the star-studded crowd.
Guests danced to music by celebrity DJ, Nick Cohen, with daughter of the Rolling Stone’s guitarist Keith Richards, the beautiful Alexandra Richards at his side. Turning the shallow end of the Delano's glamorous pool into a dance floor, the party went into the late hours. Domingo Zapata snatched former boy band member, Lance Bass, out of the crowd to begin what turned into a spray painting festival. Guests began forming a line to be sprayed by Mr. Zapata, making their Versace dresses just that much more valuable!
Entering the Delano, white curtains blowing in the warm Miami breeze, guests viewed giant pillars wrapped in Zapata's monumental collection “Girls and Guns” featuring some of the most desirable woman, Pamela Anderson and Sofia Vergara, half nude with sayings like “Make Love, Not War” and “Love Kills Slowly” sprayed across their bodies.
Making their way through the hotel and down to the pool area, the show exploded with works by Lori Hyland glowing down the walkway. Giant Giraffe paintings placed in the courtyard and impressive Tiger pieces around the VIP cabanas led the way to the packed party! A gallery of Domingo Zapata’s mixed-media colleges and high-end bags, painted by Zapata, for a new line by famed designer Carlos Falchi, stunned the crowd at this poolside extravaganza. Zapata, in high demand, could be seen giving interviews and snapping pictures for the press while the crowd outside continued to grow and the party refused to slow down.
With a two-year waiting list and yet another sold out show, DOMINGO ZAPATA continues to prove that he is indeed a truly talented Celebrity Artist!
