Meet the Artists of Red Bull Curates: Canvas Cooler Orlando


"Cooler" has a double meaning here: Not only does it refer to the glass-doored mini-fridge that artists will pimp out, it’s a good description of Red Bull’s mission to recruit artists from around the globe to make cities … well, cooler. They’ve brought together 20 of our best local artists to decorate some canvas-covered Red Bull coolers, all of which will be on permanent display at participating businesses, and two of which will go on to be part of an exhibition at the SCOPE art show in Miami in December (part of the Art Basel Miami Beach madness). Here are the artist statements from each of the participating artists, in their own words. – Brendan O’Connor
