I've arrived at the final stop on my Endless Summer European Tour: Zurich! It ends where it began with another showing of Keep Cool. This new body of work was debuted in London, June 19, 2014 and is a collection of installation, assemblages, sculpture and paintings. Hosted once again by MEKA, Keep Cool is on view in Zurich beginning Thursday September 11, with an opening day reception from 6pm-9pm. Come on out to see me before I head back to the US!
Come check out my second solo exhibition in Vienna, Sunny With a Chance of Money at AdhocPad, opening Friday August 29, 6-10pm. The exhibiting body of work was created in Vienna during my month long residency at the AdHoc creative complex, a space not to be missed! These all-new works include painting, text, installation and more, inspired by my home-sweet-home Miami.
As a part of my So Chill... show with Vienna based artist collective Perfekt World, I am releasing a very special screen print: Helluva Drug. Featuring some of the most classic Jessy Nite text sayings, the 40*50cm 4C rainbow color print is highly limited to 36 pieces, each unique because of the custom on-screen color blend. They will be available 150 Euro at the opening of So Chill... on 16th of August 2014 at Perfekt Box Gallery.
You can also email to email@example.com for orders!!! Worldwide shipping!
Perfekt World is pleased to present "SO CHILL..." - an installation project from American artist, Jessy Nite. The culmination of her month-long residency in Vienna, this group of typographic works plays into Nite's signature world of faded tropical dreams. Using bold text, bright colors, and brash narratives, Nite evokes nostalgia for youthful, "washed-out" days in the sun.
Here is the official lineup for the Jessy Nite Endless Summer European tour 2014! There is more information coming, so keep checking the site. And, live the summer vicariously through me via instagram! This is going to be the most amazing experience, and I am so grateful to the teams of people who believe in me enough to work so hard to make these shows happen. Now...get siked EU, im coming for ya!!!
After months of planning, I am thrilled to announce my solo exhibition KEEP COOL, opening in LONDON this JUNE 19-28th. The show is full of new works and completely new directions, so I'm super excited to share it with everyone! Check out MEKAPopUpArt.com for show updates and info.

A few years back Wallpaper Magazine (aka my Bible) did a piece on the burgeoning design/art scene here in Miami. Titled "Miami's Urban Reinassance," it featured buildings and spaces that are putting our fair city on the map, and one of those features was the Friends & Lovers mural I did for Shulman + Associates during Art Basel 2011.
