This year marked the first ever Boost Mobile Worlds Collide exhibition at Art Basel in Miami Beach. An experience that merged the worlds of art and music, the inaugural event saw San Francisco street artist APEX unite with musical talent to display his amazing artwork and to present some unforgettable collaborations

A street art veteran and graffiti writer, APEX creates beautiful patterns by combining abstract letterforms with cryptic, complex layering techniques and designs. Known for curating mural projects throughout San Francisco, his paintings have transformed public and industrial spaces.

“Most of the local artists were into really simple foundation letters, and I feel very fortunate that I grew up around the heavy bombing that was my initial calling,” APEX told London Street Art Design. “From there my letters came from traditional fits and semi straight, but as I began to watch more documentaries and see more wild pieces put up around the city, I began to lean towards that, which was very much seen as a progression.”
