It's the time of the year again when I can passionately and wholeheartedly boycott all coverage of the travesty that is Art Basel Miami Beach. There might be worse and more capitalist art fairs in other galaxies, but it's very, very hard to imagine.

But let's move on to more positive art news:

Earlier this week, Illuminate - a three-person group show featuring the works of Michelle "MIA" Araujo, Angelique Houtkamp & Robert Bellm (a rather arbitrary mix of styles, I must admit) - opened at Corey Helford in Culver City.

I think Mia's works truly show all that can be glorious and great about the much dreaded fantasy art genre when it's done right and I'm very glad to see that her works get more and more attention these days.

Good old Johann Heinrich Füssli would approve, methinks.
