New York Artist Asher Bayne "King of Fashion Week" Stands Out at Miami Art Fairs

NEW YORK, Dec. 15, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — New York Artist Asher Bayne took his entourage on the road last week, hitting Miami's art fairs with his usual menagerie of models, exotic animals and beard butlers, but taking care to bring locals into the mix, too. Bayne hired Miami's biggest bodybuilders to help with security—and carry him around on a custom-built throne.

"If Art Basel Miami were a competition to be seen, sure, I'd win," said Bayne, who just got back from a six week Ayahuasca retreat in the Amazon.  "But I came to Miami to look at art and to contemplate the human condition."

Asher Bayne was last spotted at New York's Fall Fashion Week 2015, where he says he was "disambiguating the culture of conformity within fashion" and where international press referred to him as the "King of Fashion Week" for his giant man bun, 5-foot beard, live peacock and his substantial flock of sycophants. In addition to the bodybuilders and his pet peacock, Bayne brought along a baby sloth to accompany him on his Miami adventures. "Have you ever gazed into the eyes of a baby sloth? They're exquisite creatures and even better metaphors," he says. Also in a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Bayne quotes, "I keep baby animals close by, to feel closer to their innocence," he explained. "They have qualities we can't ruin and are my security blanket when I'm surrounded by this much turbulence." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/is-art-basel-miami-the-giant-man-bun-of-the-arts-world_566839d0e4b080eddf563d76

Why Art Basel Miami Beach? "While I am often hermetic, I also love crowds, they are a mirror that allows me reflect on myself and my own nature," says the sensitive Bayne, who describes himself as a "gonzo anthropologist." And why travel by throne? "I feel it's important to my exploration to be able to consider the human condition from above the fray, apart but still among humanity." 

The artist adds, "The way our society values artists doesn't sit well with me.  We manufacture celebrity artists, while many of the most talented artists without connections remain hidden in the shadows."  Bayne notes that he is particularly concerned about the plight of working-class artists and the lack of a royalty structure in the US, adding mysteriously, "Maybe I can discover some outsider art I appreciate, and use my prominence to make a small dent in this corrupted system."

Asher Bayne is a stylish, socially conscious New York-based artist and social vigilante who engages with the public, wherever they are.
