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.

In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
