The North Beach (NOBE) Art Gallery will present Skott Marsi, the unidentified street artist speaking through the iconic character “Gumby,” and a live band Saturday, March 2, in the Galt Ocean Plaza. The Art Walk is held the first Saturday of each month from 7 to 10 p.m.
NOBE Art Gallery, 3444 NE 34 St., Fort Lauderdale, offers artistic and commercial photography, custom framing and sales of works by a variety of well known and emerging artists. The gallery with its broad appeal and regular art and charity events is a mainstay of the rising North Beach Arts District.
Born in New York City and working out of his own studio in Miami, Marsi’s art connects the medium with the message on lampposts, billboards, and galleries throughout the world. Initially his work was fueled by mixing his own concepts of modern pop art, greed/excess, modern society and our economic collapse together, making this style unique to the street art world. His art has since evolved to represent the theory of “Switch Life”; which asks us to reinvent ourselves in every way. Sometime we need to “Switch Life”, especially the way we think and create. His work is often created under the realities of surveillance and secrecy. The Wynwood Warehouse Project, in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami, is currently representing Marsi’s “Switch Life” asks us to reinvent ourselves in everyway, in everyday.
