During Miami Art Week, New York-based artist Eri Wakiyama debuted a collection of mystical artworks in partnership with Samsung Galaxy. Held at HUB Miami in the city’s Little Haiti neighborhood, Let Me Know When You Land championed the bounds of visual media, merging art and technology into a whimsical, immersive gallery experience. The showcase, open to the public between December 8 through 9, unveiled a series of original artworks by Wakiyama, including one-of-a-kind, hand-painted accessories paired back to Samsung Galaxy devices.


Wakiyama’s curious, brooding portraiture adorned the industrial walls of HUB Miami, a multi-purpose event space transformed by custom-built installs inspired by extraterrestrial materials and galactic environments. Let Me Know When You Land centered around Galaxy, Existentialism, and A Bright Future, a concept exploring how not-so-close realities provoke the subconscious. As part of this celestial journey, futuristic glass domes displaying hand-painted Samsung Galaxy device accessories, including Z Flip5, Buds2 Pro and S23 Ultra, were presented alongside Wakiyama’s artworks. The devices were thematically reworked with sculptural moldings and abstract illustrations, propped atop crushed beads and stones and a white base illuminated by lights. Throughout the gallery walkthrough, canvas pieces depicted Wakiyama’s eerie characters scuba diving in space, delicately treading Earth’s surface and bathing in the Milky Way — otherworldly adventures demonstrating the artist’s mastery of color, storytelling and material. 

Since HUB Miami is near Wynwood and the Design District, attendees were minutes away from vibrant murals and local street markets home to Miami, able to soak up the latest and greatest in contemporary art. Let Me Know When You Land explored how art and technology are becoming more intertwined, transcending how people experience and interpret ordinary life. Samsung Galaxy devices were the perfect canvases to reflect space-bound musings and interior dialogues that buffer in eternal orbit, all the more poetic through Wakiyama’s distinct vision.
