PS: I've never seen a school for neon? How did you get into the business? JW: I picked up neon in the late 80"s when I started to make neon spark plug wires for cars and motorcycles, then the whole Miami Vice/Sobe era hit and people started asking me to make all kinds of neon, hence the birth of Bulldog Neon. I'm a former Marine so the bulldog seemed to be the perfect logo and mascot for my company.
Almost a year ago, during Art Basel 2013, we hosted a talented street-artist from Crimea who painted on one of our walls, a mural that represents the migration process of creative minds. This artist is now a dear friend of Miami Ad School and he will be back for the school's Grand Opening event during Art Basel 2014.
Miami Ad School will unveil the artists' murals at our Grand Opening party on December 5th, as part of the Art Basel festivities. Attendees will have the chance to not just SEE art, but DO art. Guests will learn to back jump and play exquisite cadaver with street artists including Kislow, NYCHOS, Seth the Globepainter, Dome, Alex Senna, Louis Masai, Omen, Sheryo, Yok, Morik, Aber and more.
In Miami? You’re invited to our Halloween Costume Party celebrating the School’s new campus in Wynwood.
