The Packasport team just returned from Art Basel 2021, the international art fair in Miami Beach, FL. Some would say it is the prime destination for modern and contemporary art combined with the new generation of emerging artists. This exciting event provides international exposure opportunities for budding and established artists alike.
South Beach's famous art deco architecture is often juxtaposed with French minimalist artist Piet Mondrian and Brazilian pop artist Romero Britto. Pairing Mondrian’s abstract style with Britto’s cubism, and the backdrop of white sands and aqua-blue Atlantic waters is the creativity and differentiation the Art Basel event celebrates.
We are proud to say a dear friend of ours was launching their emerging fashion brand, Equals Human, using her artwork as the base for the prints at the festival this year. To our surprise, she chose to use Packasport’s largest carrier, the Trailblazer, to safely travel to South Beach. Her reasoning was because of the watertight and barrel-lock secured cargo carrier and its ability to handle paintings as wide as 42 inches wide and inches 90 long.
Our carriers can also serve as a piece of art atop your vehicle. You can express yourself through our Raptor finishes or automotive paint custom options. You might even have it wrapped with the artwork of your favorite artist. May we suggest a little Mondrian, or maybe even Britto? Whatever your artistic expression, Packasport can be your cargo carrier support.
