Since 2018, Art Angels Gallery and Nobu Miami Beach Hotel have partnered together to showcase curated artwork displays throughout the Nobu Eden Roc Hotel and the Nobu Restaurant. To celebrate Miami Art Week 2021, Art Angels and Nobu Miami Beach presents artworks on display by Punk Me Tender.
Punk Me Tender is one of Los Angeles' top artists offering works that are coveted for their color interplay, dimensionality, and the strong impact they offer to any space. Love, beauty, and desire are major themes that Punk Me Tender explores in his work, alongside the use of a butterfly, which has become his signature, symbolizing a transformative experience for anyone who comes into contact with his work.
Spin art is one of the major techniques the artist employs in the works displayed. “The technique I use is itself a transformation: I lay down colors over handmade butterflies, and watch the entire piece transform,” the artist says. “The same way a butterfly is born, and how it transforms itself from a chrysalis—my whole body of work is based on that.”
This Punk Me Tender piece was custom created for the Nobu Hotel Miami Beach and we invite you to take photographs and share the artwork. There are additional works displayed throughout the hotel lobby, spa, and within the Nobu Restaurant. We invite you to enjoy “The PunkMeTender,” a pink, gin-based cocktail topped with a butterfly garnish, available in the hotel lobby bar.
