MIAMI, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Making its national debut in the US, artist Kai Guetta will unveil a collection of work featuring urban musical "royalty." Coinciding with Miami's Winter Music Conference, Kai's exhibit, "Now Royalty," is a series of 27 original oil-on-canvas pieces featuring a diversity of urban music super stars donning classic royal attire.
Framed in antique gold, period style frames, the oversized pieces are near life-size for the subjects they portray. Jay Z & Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Diddy, Eminem, Drake, and more are depicted in a way that represents the grandeur in which the public holds them today.
The 'Now Royalty' collection quickly made European headlines when it was shown via a true rogue street art display. Reprints of the pieces were mounted to large boxed frames that were placed over advertisements in the subway station at the famed Louvre-Rivoli Museum in France.
"The 'Now Royalty' collection has brought my art into a new light," said Guetta. "It's going to be interesting to see what happens in the States where the musical geniuses in Row Royalty are revered by fans. I hope it will open some creative doors for me, which will allow me to get back in the studio and create more work. Whatever comes of it, I'll be thankful for."
The unveiling will take place at one of Wynwood's newest galleries, the LULU Labortarium, at a special reception on March 27th at 7pm. Curated by visionary Elie Akiba, who has partnered with Amsterdam's Urban Art House, LULU Labortarium is a collaboration of artists and designers who share a commitment to true self-expression.
The 10,000+ sq. ft. venue delivers a powerful explosion of playful wonder. Meshing bold contemporary style with a youthful vigor, the gallery takes on electro-eclectic elements for a fun fresh look that draws from fashion and art. Though the gallery will be dedicated solely to Kai's work for the next few weeks, The LULU Labortarium quickly set itself apart from other galleries by the diverse and whimsical collection it shows, as well as a variety of retail items that range from limited edition bicycles, Marshall musical amps and apparel.
About Kai Guetta:
Kai is an international artist that started at a very young age. He was constantly surrounded by graffiti and street work and decided that this was his passion. At age 14, Kai was dedicated to get his father to quit smoking so he began his first street art campaign, 'Morons.' He plastered the city with this image and he gained more and more attention, earning a reputation in the street art community.
At the age of 18, he was accepted into the most prestigious art schools in both the United States and France. He chose to attend CalArts and Ecole Nationale Superior Beaux Arts Des Paris. Kai's style of art is a combination of major artists including: Damien Hirst, Banksy, and Koons to name a few. Kai followed with more work that addressed consumerism and society's addictions. Los Angeles Magazine recognized him as being on the forefront of street artists.
Kai's work has been shown in worldwide galleries including Los Angeles Lab Art, New York Taglialatella, and this month at Lulu Laboratorium.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
