Visionary-Expo

This weekend the DoubleTree Miami Mart Hotel & Exhibition Center played host to Visionary Expo. What is the Visionary Expo you may ask? Here’s what the website tells us: “Visionary Expo is the first tattoo and art festival of it’s kind concentrating on visionary art, tattooing, music, and performance art. The world’s finest tattoo artists and painters will be there fused in live painting sessions…”

As soon as you approached the entrance of the exhibition center the hum of tattoo machines let you know what this expo was about, but throughout the weekend the show had several other artistic expressions featured. Artwork by Chet Zar was shown in one booth, and local graffiti artists Crome, and MSG Cartel were on hand with Eazy Street Gallery. In the back of the room painting seminars went on all weekend. There was a fashion show, contests, core suspension show, and even ongoing circus performances by Cirque Du Macabre from Florida Circus Art School,LLC.

The show included tattoo artists from around the globe, including Taiwan Tattoo. South Florida was represented very well with artists Federico Ferroni, Miki Foged, Dicky Magoo, and shops like Chico’s Marked 4 Life, Black Sparrow Tattoo Company, and Salvation Tattoo Lounge among others.

The show was an interesting experience. I only attended on Sunday, so I missed some of the more interesting performances. Next time they have a show I’ll have to check it out before the last day.

    This makes me wonder why I haven’t seen this show before. I’m quite interested with this expo’s another shows. You’ve just mentioned above that there are fashion shows, contests, and some other show just like core suspension. When I saw the name, it makes me think of something that I almost forget..
