Not just how James Brown used to refer to a brand-new carton of eggs, OhSoulFresh is also now the brainchild of a local graffiti artist who wanted to "give a spark and educate" fellow street artisans, but couldn't afford a gallery. So instead, this problem-solver's popping-up a multi-artist showcase every couple of months in raw, eclectic locations across Miami, including apartments, empty storefronts on Brickell, or your neighbor's car... Kidding! There are no empty storefronts on Brickell!
You'll definitely want to hit this up if you...
Have a girlfriend who thinks you're not spontaneous or cultured enough: Um, it's an urban contemporary pop-up gallery with a) a divulged-at-the-last-minute location and b) rotating street artistes. That's just some double problem solving right there. You're welcome.
Have a girlfriend who thinks you're not spontaneous or cultured enough, and hates the art in your apartment: Not only can you check out all the designs, but you can dress up your walls back home with actually affordable originals of Dee Perez's lineup of gangster-looking hip hoppers and Atomik's grinning "MIA Orange", which's seriously fab (Melo).
Have a girlfriend who thinks you're not spontaneous or cultured enough, and hates the art in your apartment, but she's super hot and you totally want to have the sex with her tonight: While perusing the works, repeat the founder's mission to "provide an environment free of restrictions where they have complete creative control and freedom to create and explore, regardless of content, material, or medium." Then buy tons of condoms.
Just really like My Little Pony art: Yep, they've got an artist scheduled for the next gallery who canvases some trippy versions of your favorite miniature horses, which you always wanted to ride, despite James' objections to "Get Up Offa That Thing".
