2015 Coconut Grove Arts Festival poster unveiled
Duaív joins the Festival’s selective group of official poster artists that includes such notables as Guy Harvey, Maria Reyes Jones, Jacqueline Roch, Xavier Cortada, Clyde Butcher, Rick Garcia, Lisa Remeny, Alexander Mijares and Romero Britto.
This year’s poster image encompasses Duaív’s signature uplifting and bright style with one of Coconut Grove’s most emblematic icons. Titled "Voiliers" – meaning “sailboat” in French – Duaív blends his own fascination of marine imagery with scenes from that of Miami’s own famous harbor in Biscayne Bay. The work was done with a palate knife, so it's very textured.

He continues to exhibit all over the world in favorite locations such as France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Tunisia, Australia and across the United States. The Sonesta did an amazing job of catering and hosting the event, as usual.

While I said that the Beaux Arts Festival is the most civilized of the festivals around town, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival has to be my favorite, maybe I'm partial, but the art, the surroundings, the food, the people the craziness is what makes it special. I can spend all three days a the Grove Festival and never get bored.
