"Last year during Art Basel I had a solo booth at Context art fair with Jonathan Levine Gallery. Club Deuce was one of the paintings in the show. For the show I focused on iconic places around Miami. The painting is part of my Waiting series and was created using oil paint on canvas.
The summer before Miami Basel I spent a few weeks in Miami documenting places. I did a lot of research leading up to the trip and a lot of documenting when I was there. Everyone ends up at Club Deuce at some point during Basel, so I felt it was an appropriate place to include in the series." - Brett Amory
Detroit based publisher 1xRUN has teamed up with the trendsetting Scope Art Fair and tastemaker Juxtapoz Magazine to curate six limited edition releases to coincide with Scope’s 2015 Miami Beach Art Fair, December 1st - 6th. This exclusive print suite will feature new limited editions from Aiko, Brett Amory, Brandon Boyd, Doze Green, Russ Pope and Brian Viveros with each print releasing live at the 1xRUN / Juxtapoz Art Bar.
Beginning Thursday December 3rd the 1xRUN / Juxtapoz Art Bar will host two limited edition live print releases each day at 3:00pm and 6:00pm. Patrons of the fair will have the first chance to purchase these limited edition prints along with a chance to meet each of the artists at Booth G19.
With collectors and fans of all types descending on the Scope Art Fair from around the globe, the three organizations saw a need to bridge the gap between established collectors and the burgeoning fan bases just beginning their collection after being exposed to these artists in Juxtapoz or through social media. Juxtapoz Magazine’s Editor-In-Chief Evan Pricco was tasked to curate a group of artists that represented the vast landscape of the new contemporary movement. 1xRUN worked with each of the artist to publish a limited edition that would be coveted by collectors and Scope will play host to this unique collaboration.
“It’s exciting to see many of these artists selling out editions online within minutes and we wanted to bring that energy to a live environment. This print suite features artists that have built both a traditional fine art career and a robust print market. With this suite wanted to involve both fans to collectors, creating the excitement of a live print release inside the art fair,” 1xRUN Co-Founder Jesse Cory said.
Scope Art Fair is located at 801 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach. For additional information head 1xRUN.com and follow @1xrun, @juxtapozmag and @scopeart for up to the minute updates.

ABOUT Brett Amory:
Born in Chesapeake, Virginia in 1975, Brett Amory is descended from a long line of visual artists and musicians. He studied at the Academy of Art from which he received a BFA in Fine Art in 2005 and was recipient of two major awards given by the school: The Student Choice Award for 2004 and Second Prize in landscape painting for 2003. He is the recipient of a gold medal from Online Artists Interviews, an international juried art competition (2009). He graduated from the Academy of Arts in 2005. Brett began working on the painting series entitled “Waiting” in 2001. The series depicts the urban individual’s yearning for presence and the seeming impossibility of attaining it. The paintings portray commuters in transit immersed in either a quiet, even hopeful state or, alternately, an anguish of unfulfilled anticipation.
