After moving to a new location and some major renovation, the brand new STK Miami has officially re-opened on South Beach. You can read all about in this New Times article and, if you look very carefully, you can catch a mention about the works they commissioned from me. If you're lucky enough to go in person, take a look up and check out the two diptych text paintings in the entryway...you're guaranteed a chuckle.
I recently posted a screen shot of my phone with the PRISM artwork as my wallpaper, and a bunch of people hit me up asking if they could have it too. Well...your text/email/comment/prayers have been answered!!! FREE WALLPAPER FOR EVERYONNNEEEE!!!!! (who has an iphone 5, 6 or 6+!!!!!!!!!)
The Wynwood Art Fair opens today! Catch work from International galleries as well as a handful of Miami favs. I have a piece hanging with a bunch of Miami homies in the MIT booth, so take a peek while you're there!
Here a little Q&A spotlighting my outdoor/mural works from CURBED MIAMI. It was fun to talk about concepting large spaces and how I'm not really a street artist haha! Thanks for having me :)

Next time you're near Downtown, Wynwood, Midtown, or the Design District, be sure to do a drive-by and see with your own two eyes!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
