VH1 is teaming up with SCOPE for the third year in a row to celebrate art and music. However, this year will be extra special because award-winning visual artist and master calligrapher Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic will be taking over the VH1 + SCOPE Party on December 5th and debuting an incredible custom multimedia installation.
Mestrovic will unveil NOESIS: an exhibition featuring hundreds of feet made from Japanese synthetic paper, which he will hand paint to create the longest continuous painting to be shown at this year’s Art Basel. He will couple this with audio-video projections featuring his renowned Living Paintings installation, which debuted at MoMA earlier this year.
Get to know Mestrovic and his brilliant work below and stay tuned for more information on this year’s show.
