Miami. Home to warm weather in winter, awesome street art, and the biggest art fair in the United States, Art Basel Miami Beach. Oh, and deviants! Lots and lots of amazing deviants.

This past weekend people traveled from far and wide to attend the Art Basel Miami Beach contemporary art show, and Heidi, aunnyd, Shyree, codenamepanther, and draweverywhere were no exception. With the incredible energy this vibrant art event brings, we thought what better time to host our first-ever Miami deviantMEET?

Deviants from the greater Miami area came together (almost 150 in total!) to celebrate and support their fellow peers at the Multiversal Miami group art show in the downtown district of Wynwood. Over 80% of the art on the walls at this event were original works created by deviants just like you! An entire gallery wall was dedicated to deviantART, where a selection of our Fine Art Prints from our retail Shop hung on display to admire by the thousands of people who attended the four-day event at Multiversal.

Our very own, draweverywhere gave a presentation about deviantART muro during a portion of the devMEET. He showed the eager crowd examples of some of the incredible drawings he created with this free online drawing tool, and shared some of his tips and tricks.

He also talked for a bit about the new Animal Style group he was working with on deviantART, and took the time to field questions from the crowd and also did demos of how to use muro with his trusty Wacom tablet.

Every deviant who signed in at the front desk with Shyree was entered in to a drawing to win one of the fine art prints that were on display. Heidi announced the winners right before we ventured out on the art crawl around the Wynwood arts district – lucky deviants!

We came. We saw a TON of awesome art at Multiversal and the surrounding neighborhood during our deviantART crawl, and we had a blast getting to know all of you who came out to hang. A HUGE thanks to all the deviants who spent their Saturday with us at Multiversal Miami, and those who stayed late to go on our little excursion through Wynwood to see all of the amazing street art! And thank you to everyone you took pictures and has posted them to the Multiversal group page on dA.

Here is a list of some of the deviants who attended the first-ever Miami deviantMEET. If you don’t see your name here, please send us a note on the Multiversal group page to let us know!
