Art Basel "08

Art Basel 2008 was a busy one for us. With 7 events in 5 days, it kept us moving but in the end it was well worth the effort.

We kicked off the week hosting "Homegrown" with the New Times at the Vagabond. LEBO and Francesco Lo Castro painted live to some of the best bands in Miami.

Miami EV Project

LEBO Studios joined the effort of conscious energy consumption by art directing a new endeavor with the Miami EV Project. We collaborated with M.E.V. and created the exterior of their latest vehicle transformation. Miami EV project is a non profit dedicated to the development and research of Electric Vehicles as a viable alternative to gasoline powered transportation. Not only the car was converted into electric but also the interior was reupholstered using fabrics made of recycled plastic bottles and the exterior was wrapped with LEBO's design (see the car here.) This wrap was done with leftover vinyl from other car wrapping projects and the artistic design was inspired by the synergy of the forces of nature, electricity and water to represent a moving process and an awakening to change. Watch the whole conversion process was and photos of the finished product at:


Joining forces with Adidas

Once again Adidas Originals and LEBO Studios joined forces to bring custom Adidas to the masses and raise money for the kids. Proceeds from the live auction went to benefit Charlee Homes for Children which is one of the largest non-profit child care facilities in South Florida.

Jam Cruise 2009 and LEBO

For the fourth year in a row LEBO Studios started out the year as the guest artist for Jam Cruise, the original music festival on the high seas. Aside from setting up our gallery, LEBO also painted live along side acts like Les Claypool, Galactic and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Many thanks to all the great Jam Cruisers that showed so much love along with the Cloud 9 crew and rest of the family.
