Jesus Christ's Nikes, Uncle Six Eyes, and Old School Txt Spk at Aqua Art Fair

Photos by Victor Gonzalez
Hotel art typically sucks--at least at the joints we've stayed at. Crap watercolored landscapes, generic photographs of generic stuff like clouds and hills, and tacky vases on formica nightstands often make us want to vomit.

However there's one hotel that really knows art--the Aqua. And each year during Basel, the small Collins Avenue property transforms into the "best hotel art fair in the world."

This year's show definitely lived up to its name. We saw some really interesting pieces by some really talented artist. And get this: Jesus Christ's basketball kicks from a 2009 pick-up game were on display. Nuts.

Check out some of our favorite pieces after the jump.

Cynthia Constentino, Girl With Gun

Freeze, bitch. I'm feeling short tempered.

American the Beautiful

This is what America's projectile vomiting looks like.

Brian Detmer, Straight Outta Compton's

Can't do this with an e-reader.

Jesus Shoes

We hear Christ's a beast on the hard court. Watch those elbows, JC.

Shawn Huckins, Henry Pelham's Jocular Tweet

Txt spk!

Travis Louis, Uncle Six Eyes

Everyone's got a creepy uncle, but this dude might be the weirdest.
