Miami’s Atomik wants city approval to paint a basketball court at a Liberty City park.
Atomik’s real name is Adam Vargas, according to a city resolution set to be heard by the Art in Public Places Board.
Vargas’ creative range appears to be limited to painting a smiling orange, which can be regularly seen throughout Miami.
If the Art in Public Places Board approves, Atomik will paint his smiling orange on a court at Belafonte Park at 6161 NW 9 Avenue in Liberty City. It will remain in place for up to five years.
The work is valued at approximately $45,000.00, the applicant claims. Sei Shimura, another artist, filed the application to install the work.
The Art in Public Places Board is scheduled to decide on accepting the donation at a November 18 meeting.
