'Dog #130', Papercrete and Resin, 15 x 12 Inches

"Every morning before I go into my studio I walk with my dogs for about two hours. We don’t have a schedule, the length of the walk depends on how many rabbits, squirrels, new smells, and other treasures they dig up along the way. Making art for me is very much like walking my dogs. I go in to my studio and sniff around. I pick up a thing or two, decide if it has interest and I might work on it or maybe begin something brand new. Like my dogs I’m always excited and ready to see where the work will take me. My art is the stuff that I leave behind after hours in the studio." –Skip Hartzell
Group of (4) Paintings, each piece is Oil On Canvas,16 x 20 Inches

The artist has held numerous solo exhibitions at notable art galleries and prestigious art fairs such as Art Palm Beach, A.E. Backus Museum, ArtHouse 429, Paul Fisher Gallery, Aqua Art Fair during Art Basel Miami Beach and many more.
'Sitter', Papercrete and Resin, 8 x 8 x 8 Inches

Hartzell is a longtime supporter of no-kill animal rescues and donates proceeds from the sale of his artworks to animal-rescue, no kill shelters. For sales info, private commissions, general inquiries or exhibition updates, email: / visit

This event is FREE and Open to the Public, RSVP here.

The Incredible Miami Sculptor & Illustrator Ian Fichman

Miami-based sculptor and illustrator Ian Fichman is known for his amusing metal sculptures, creating an army of steel, rustic figures – each with a unique vibe and story – at the Bakehouse Art Complex in the Wynwood Arts District.

“My artwork is a sardonic narrative of human existence. Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is uniquely assembled piece by piece, bringing its character to life. Their bodies are built around stylized skeletal structures, focusing on the framework of our being. The figures are mutually faceless, symbolizing our kinship as human beings through the shared struggles of our endeavors. My sculptures chronicle life experiences, each driven by different desires but similarly seeking a correct modus operandi to fulfill their own aspirations, if there even is one.”

Ian Fichman was born in Miami, Florida in 1978. With an outlook that defies the familiar, Ian renounces the regularly scheduled program. He has always been a weirdo. During his years at Florida State University, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Studio Art in 2002, he was introduced to metalwork. Given the freedom to explore the possibilities of the medium, Ian found fulfillment working with his hands.

In 2010, after a brief venture into the digital arts, he returned to sculpture. Joining the program at San Diego State University, Ian gained unlimited access to the sculpture lab where he worked as a technician. It was there that he began to fine-tune the style and techniques that have made his work what it is today. Returning to his hometown, Ian set up shop at Studio #1 in the Bakehouse Art Complex in Wynwood. Committed to creating, he works full time in his practice to expand his portfolio, while searching for opportunities to increase the reach of his work.

You can find Fichman and his series of uniquely assembled, one-of-a-kind art pieces at the Bakehouse Art Complex in Studios #1 & #12 located in the Wynwood Arts District at 561 NW 32nd Street in Miami, Florida 33127.
