MIAMI, FL - NOV 30 - Today the editors of Ocean Drive, part of Modern Luxury Media, the nation's largest luxury media company, release The Arts Issue, highlighting the return to the action-packed electrifying festivities of Art Basel and Miami Art Week.

Within the pages of the annual Arts Issue, editors give an exclusive sneak peek at the newest must-see installations and events that will descend upon Miami. From an exclusive look at the FriendsWithYou exhibit and its newest Miami installation along Espanola Way to celebrating the next generation of Miami’s brilliant, cutting-edge art innovators, this issue is jam packed with round-the-clock plans, places and people to explore.

“It’s finally the most magical time of year. December has always been a month I look forward to, due in large part to the jovial holiday spirit, but also from taking part in the electrifying festivities of Art Basel week,” said Paige Mastandrea, Editor in Chief of Ocean Drive. “After a hiatus due to the 2020 pandemic restrictions, we are thrilled to once again return to the action-packed week that breathes new life into our hometown, drawing in out-of-towners from all over the world. It is the epitome of why life in Miami is so incredibly unique and we are blessed to call this city home.”

The editors of Ocean Drive couldn’t be more excited to reveal the cover of this year’s Arts Issue which is an incredible collaboration between beloved music maestro Diplo and esteemed global artist collaborators FriendsWithYou. Aside from how acclaimed both Diplo and FriendsWithYou are in their own arenas, the collaboration is extra-special as it brings together childhood best friends and nods to their South Florida roots. The creatives were instantly attracted to one another, and now, this beautiful work of art comes full circle to highlight friendship, art, fashion and creativity. Mastandrea chats with Diplo on his wild, jet-setting career, as he surpasses the boundaries of the music industry by making his own rules along the way.
