This year, the famous Miami Art Week Art Basel welcomed the artist Philippe Shangti, who showcased two of his last captivating works, “Luxury Dubai Dinner” and “Luxury Lust Dinner,” exclusively with Los Angeles’ Art Angels Gallery.
These works, exhibited at the Context Art Miami from December 5 to 10, 2023, captivated visitors’ attention, with special acclaim for “Luxury Dubai Dinner,” which became one of the most photographed pieces at the event.
Philippe Shangti, known for his ability to merge art, fashion, and social critique, once again demonstrated his talent for capturing the essence of contemporary luxury while questioning its limits and contradictions. “Luxury Dubai Dinner,” an extravagant and provocative piece, offered a visually stunning depiction of Dubai’s opulence, while “Luxury Lust Dinner” explored themes of desire and affluence with a touch of irony.
The Los Angeles-based Art Angels Gallery was lauded for its bold selection and commitment to promoting works that challenge norms and stimulate dialogue. Their collaboration with Shangti for this exhibition was a highlight of Miami Art Basel, attracting collectors, critics, and art enthusiasts from around the globe.
The visual impact and underlying message of these works sparked lively discussions among visitors, many appreciating how Shangti blends art and social reflection in a format that is both accessible and deeply immersive.
