Detroit Gallery Returns To Miami For Annual Art Basel Miami Beach Art Fair
Inner State Gallery Presents New Works By 2501, Cryptik, Pixel Pancho & Tiff Massey
This December 1st - 4th, Inner State Gallery returns to Scope’s Miami Beach Art Fair taking over South Beach during 2016’s Miami Art Basel Week. After last year’s sold out exhibition was one of the most talked about of the fair, Los Angeles-based calligrapher and muralist Cryptik will showcase intricate new works on layered wood, as well as a unique layered glass screen printed multiple. Italian artist 2501, who also graces this year’s Scope brochure, will exhibit new mixed media works and arching sculptural pieces both at the booth and entrance to the fair itself.
In addition, Detroit’s Tiff Massey will unveil striking new powdercoated brass and steel jewelry, sculptures and installation pieces. Rounding the exhibition out Italy’s Pixel Pancho brings several new paintings and two new reclaimed sculptural works. On top of breathtaking new paintings, Inner State’s booth highlights welcomed mix of sculptural pieces on view for the first time in what is already being talked about as one of the most anticipated exhibitions of the year.
The prestigious Scope Art Fair takes place during Art Basel Miami in the heart of Miami Beach, and since its inception has proved to be the place to see the world’s leading contemporary artists and galleries. A monumental pavilion welcomes nearly 45,000 visitors over the course of six days. Showcasing more than 100 of the world’s best contemporary galleries, hundreds of artists will unveil new groundbreaking work during the largest art festival in the country.
“After last year’s sold out exhibition in Miami we had to follow up in 2016 with one of our most prolific collections. Cryptik has proven to be one of contemporary art’s most unique voices and his meditative mandalas will again have collectors stopping in their tracks. On top of that, we are also excited to showcase new works from 2501, Pixel Pancho and Tiff Massey, for a well rounded blend of traditional paintings and sculptural work with a little something for everybody,” Jesse Cory Co-Founder of Inner State Gallery said.
Inner State Gallery’s Scope Exhibition is located at Booth G01 at 801 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach.

About Cryptik: Cryptik is a Los Angeles based artist that creates works of art that explore the realm of spirituality and consciousness. His signature style of calligraphy and culturally inspired pattern work, along with his iconic depictions of deities and spiritual leaders, can be seen throughout the world, adorning the urban landscape and galleries alike. The goal of his art is to challenge people to think of other possibilities and to see a different reality; one that encompasses many ideologies, philosophies, and belief systems in order to help us better understand our place in the universe.
About 2501: The work of Milan-based artist 2501 is complicated fare: abstract but tactile. His art and process serve as an investigative conduit between an individual who has absorbed a number of principles from classical art and the application of them in a contemporary fashion. The result confers an ability to achieve a better personal understanding of one’s place in the modern, post-industrialist urban environment.
About Pixel Pancho: The narrative in Italian-based artist Pixelpancho’s work is driven by a forgotten world that sits under a blanket of dust. In it, broken and dented robots are found decaying into the ground, their iron and rusted copper bodies falling and lying as if discarded into oblivion. Although the scale of his work ranges, the surreal realm is a constant thread, piercing through contemporary and historical references that add a sense of relevance within our place and time. The strength of physical and gestural references that humanize these robots results in the artist's unmistakable mark. Found on the walls of abandoned buildings in cities throughout Europe, the U.S. and Mexico, Pixel Pancho’s work is an interconnected structure of stories. The murals, the paintings, the sculptures....in the end are only a small part of something greater, another story within the ever growing realm.
About Tiff Massey: Tiff Massey is a mixed-media artist from Detroit, Michigan. Massey holds a Masters of Fine Art in metalsmithing from Cranbrook Academy of Art, and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Eastern Michigan University. Her work, inspired by African standards of economic vitality, includes both large-scale and wearable sculptures. Massey counts the iconic material culture of 1980's hip-hop as a major influence in her jewelry. She uses contemporary observances of class and race through the lens of an African diaspora, combined with material drawn from her experience in Detroit.
