Sweat is proud to have several amazing permanent artworks by some of Miami’s most esteemed artists on display at our shop (5505 NE 2nd Ave). Here’s what’s what.
“First Five Years”
Silk-screened concert poster art on display and for sale.
Since 2005, Iron Forge Press has been designing and printing projects for a music and fashion oriented client base, many of which are located in South Florida. Specializing in all aspects of design with a focus in hand pulled, screen-printed gig posters, art prints, and higher-end garment printing/decorating, IronForge has carved out its own niche in the worlds of art, design and production printing. This show represents the first five years of their concert posters, primarily for local events.
IronForge have been featured in numerous art shows and websites, and in the books “The Art of Modern Rock” + “Gig Posters”
“Sweat Records’ Wall of Idolatry”
Sweat’s now-iconic mural wraps the front of the building in a collage of some of the store’s and artist’s favorite musicians of all time. Featured from left-to-right are: Daft Punk, Prince, Iggy Pop, Morrissey, MF Doom, Bjork, Serge Gainsbourg, Noodle from Gorillaz, David Bowie, Billie Holiday, Murdoc from Gorillaz, Notorious B.I.G., Aphex Twin and Johnny Cash. CP1 is a Miami graffiti artist, muralist and art teacher who creates his incredibly detailed pieces with no brushes whatsoever – just a deft hand with a can of spray paint.
“Vibrations of Illumination”
The TM’s burst of vivid color around the entryway was created as “an empowering, energizing blessing that shoots down onto everyone that walks into SWEAT!”
“Yellow Eyeball Wall”
(In)famous Miami graffiti artist and all-around scene supporter AHOLSNIFFSGLUE splashes a bold yellow drop of his signature eyeballs onto the wall at Sweat.
Installed over two marathon sessions, this multi-layered and many-faceted piece is a visual teenage riot. Hundreds of artistic and everyday elements combine to overwhelm the viewer with a barrage of color, shape and texture that is harmonious in its cacophony.
