New York Sunshine founder and multidisciplinary artist John Margaritis recently launched a solo exhibition entitled “BROKEN TIME” during Art Basel Miami 2018. Margaritis’ affinity for basketball and artistic abilities learned from his father’s artisan craft is the nexus of the presentation. Highlights include an immersive installation comprised of a sphere of steel backboards, a hand wagon transformed into a functional chair that was meticulously crafted using multiple layers of hard oak wood, and a countdown clock adorned with barbwire that invokes the ephemerality of human life.
“I’ve had a strong passion for basketball growing up in Long Island in New York,” said Margaritis of the basketball-themed artworks. “My father taught me everything I know and a lot of these pieces are an homage to him,” he continued.
Accompanying the works is New York Sunshine’s collaborative merchandise with Dewalt & Milwaukee alongside a pop-up shop with Flight Club in Miami’s Design District. View the exclusive imagery above and then head over to New York Sunshine’s website to learn more.
