Transforming Ad Space into Public Art: Troy Simmons Teams Up with Save Art Space
 Miami Artist Troy Simmons’ work will be on display in a public art exhibition during Miami Art Week at Art Basel.  Simmons is teaming up with #Saveartspace, a non-profit dedicated to transforming traditional advertising platforms into public art.    

The group exhibition comprises work of 8 local South Florida artists which will be displayed on billboards and bus shelters across the Wynwood Art District.  Curated by Co-founders Travis Rix and Justin Aversano, this is the group’s second public art exhibition, the previous one transforming spaces in Brooklyn, New York.
Troy Simmons was born in 1975 in Texas and currently resides in Miami, Florida.  His educational background is in Environmental Sciences and Architecture. Simmons' work is influenced by nature and the Brutalist Architecture movement of the 1950s. He uses concrete, color fields and organic forms to express his position on the coexistence of different entities.  Simmons is represented by JanKossen Contemporary Art (New York/Basel, Switzerland) and is a resident artist at Bakehouse Art Complex in the Wynwood Art District.
Simmons’ more recent exhibitions include: Art Southamptons (2015), Art Paris (2015), The University of Miami Museum Gallery (2015), Boca Museum of Art  (2014), Audrey Love Gallery, Miami, FL (2014).
