ON-THE-GO: ART BASEL 2013 - MIAMI BEACH
75,000 people flooded the streets of Miami Beach for the annual Art Basel fair! The attendees included celebrities, socialites, fashionista & the artsy types. Me, oh I missed it this year. I was home sick, but I heard nothing but awesome things and I’ll share a few pictures found on HuffPost! If you’ve never been and you love art and the culture that follows you should really plan to visit next year! The Art Galleries are amazing and artist & curators travel from all over the world! I mean, what about that awesome piece above from Juan Genoves?! See and read more here! xo ROZ-O!
Veni, Vidi,Vici: I came, I saw, I conquered.
I live by this! Some are familiar with this term because of Jay-Z. He rapped the words "I need you to remember one thing: I came, I saw, I conquered" in his hit ‘Encore’, featured on the classic LP The Black Album!
I was already very familiar with the classical Latin line, referenced by Julius Caesar, referring to ‘a swift, conclusive victory.’ For me, it’s an affirmation: I came into the world, I saw what it had to offer and I conquered what I was put here to achieve. To come, to see, to conquer; respectively.
'Combinations of this sentence (Veni, Vidi, Vici) 'are often quoted in music, art, literature and entertainment' all things that I enjoy; so it's fitting. I love tattoos and I make sure that everyone that I get mean something. So there, a little tid-bit about me! xo ROZ-O!

PHARRELL WILLIAMS stopped by the Mary Boone Gallery recently in New York to check out KAW’s new sculptures. Awesome!
I think it’s great that Milk Studios will have an exhibit of The Champ from October 1st - October 20th in the Milk Gallery. I received an invite for opening night, but sadly, I won’t be in town. We have photographer Thomas Hoepker to thank for the awesome photos, like the one above of Ali and his second wife Belinda. Below, Thomas recalls Ali’s romantic side. Read more of the love story after the jump! xo @rozOonTheGo
“We were cruising in Chicago’s South side when Ali asked his driver to stop in front of a small bakery. He got out and after a good while came back with a paper bag of doughnuts. “Best in town”, he said. I was surprised because I knew that he was on a strict diet of steak and salad during his training. But an hour or so later, we were back in the neighborhood. Ali spotted the bakery and went in for a refill of doughnuts.”
I love tattoos and this picture is inspiring me to move forward with my sleeve! ART is my life and Tattooing is art! As requested, I’ll post more on ink love!

Wednesday (last week) night Milk Studios in Los Angeles hosted a private event to unveil legendary graffiti artist Futura’s limited edition Hennessy VS bottle. The custom bottles are a continuation of the brand’s collaborative series with high profile street artists, launched last year with a design by KAWS.
DJ D-Nice got the party started spinning nineties hip-hop while Usher, Olivia Munn, Matt Kemp, Tristan Wilds,Wynter Gordon, Kid Cudi, Sophia Bush and Jesse Williams mingled in the VIP. By eleven, female fans lined the stage for Diplo’s DJ set, followed by a live performance from Santigold who kept the stylish crowd dancing until 2am. (MORE dope Pics after the jump!)
This picture is from Art Basel on Miami Beach, Florida which is one of the ‘most prestigious art shows in the America’s’ according to it’s website. I’m definitely a fan of the arts and I’m looking forward to the 2012 exhibition being held December 6-9th. Events like this get my creative juices flowing; I’m inspired and what’s life without inspiration?! More than 260 leading galleries from Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America and Europe will take part in showcasing works by more than 2,000 artists! Roz-O will be On The Go and of course, I’ll share with you on the site :). xo Roz-O!
