A wall where Drain has pasted up samples of the metallic colored goat skin he’s using to embellish his new sweater series. At left is a small portion of the piece he made to wrap the fence surrounding the empty lot that will soon become NE 40th, a high-end shopping center whose owners plan to incorporate contemporary art installations and the new Miami headquarters for OHWOW. To make the hundreds of panels for the work, which debuted during Art Basel, Drain invited students from the local Design Architecture Senior High to help him melt crayons onto paper for a stained-glass effect. He then scanned those and paired them with images of the lot itself, printing the whole composition onto the same mesh vinyl most outdoor ads are made from.
