ANTHONY BOLD’S GRIT BY DESIGN ANNOUNCES FULL LINEUP FOR ITS INAUGURAL ART BASEL ACTIVATION
THE HOTTEST UPCOMERS IN ART AND MUSIC ARE READY TO TAKE THE STAGE AS PART OF THE MULTI-DAY LIVE EXPERIENCE
Miami, Florida, November 15th, 2021 – Grit by Design™, a multi-artist platform spectacle and live art experience founded by entrepreneur Anthony Bold, will be hosting its first activation on December 1 through December 4 as part of Art Basel at the WATR HAUS. Located in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami, WATR HAUS is primarily home to DROPLET a new wellness on-demand delivery platform being launched by Anthony Bold. The multi-day event will feature leading artists and recognized musicians showcasing unparalleled live performances.
Grit by Design™ was founded by entrepreneur Anthony Bold, to create a platform for driven artists to create spectacles out of their work and collaborate on disruptive projects that empower them, and the world around us.
Grit by Design rests on a set of values embodied by every artist, or creator. Values such as risk, truth, integrity, and focus. Each artist at Grit by Design will feature four works of art that identify with four values that the artist personified when they started their journey and remain with them today as they have achieved success.
Highlights of the Grit by Design schedule include live performances by Grammy award-winning musicians, a live painting by Brett Loving using an excavator to paint a designer dress worn by a live female model, and finally, artist Diogo Snow will paint Lamborghini Super Trofeo while it is suspended in the air with a crane, live, while being filmed for an upcoming prime-time docuseries on Snow and his artistry, and his collaboration with Anthony Bold.
Grit by Design™ is powered by Droplet a wellness-driven platform delivering hydration and natural wellness products on demand, and DRINK WATR, a new wellness brand focused on redesigning drinking water. Each was officially launched by Anthony Bold in 2022.
