We love our Superfine! team very much and hope you do too.
FOUNDER + DIRECTOR
Compulsive curator and serial entrepreneur Alex Mitow made his mark in the art world through a circuitous route. An early reveler in Miami's Art Basel/Wynwood renaissance, he then founded the street art bedecked Los Perros Locos restaurant in NYC's Lower East Side neighborhood. As his tastes evolved so did his artistic aspirations and he began creating pop-up art exhibitions, culminating with the very first Superfine! Miami in 2015 and then the very well-received second edition of the fair heralded by local and international media alike as a harbinger of a more accessible art market, in December 2016. He loves collecting original artwork and vintage barware, and lives in a contemporary art-fueled Morocco-meets-Manhattan deco paradise on Miami Beach.
James acts as the driving force behind all things teal and yellow seen at Superfine! fairs. Beyond his role as creative director within all Superfine! fairs and associated projects, James is an accomplished photographer and graphic designer who splits his time between Miami and NYC. His work has been featured in publications such as Hi-Fructose Magazine, Artnet, and Posture Magazine and has also been exhibited in a solo show in New York's NoLiTa neighborhood, as part of the Faces n2 exhibition at Galerie 55Bellechasse in Paris, France. He has developed an unhealthy habit of narrating his pet shiba inu's thoughts and specializes in making things float--and yes, he does in fact have two i's in his last name.
