March 7, 2019 – Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line (BPCL), the only provider of two-night cruises and Cruise & Resort stays to Grand Bahama Island year-round from the Port of Palm Beach, presents the first-ever ARTSEA, a unique art experience never-before seen in the cruise industry. Internationally-recognized artists including Jose Sabate "PEZ", The London Police and Dasic Fernandez, amongst others who will be in South Florida for the annual Winter Music Conference, will join Miami legend Afrobeta and Chicago icon DJ Wags for a one-of-a-kind, art-centric cruise experience. Guests can extend their Winter Music Conference festivities (taking place March 25-31) with an interactive art getaway where EDM meets graffiti, to be experienced both onboard and on the picturesque beaches of Grand Bahama Island.
“We at Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line aren’t afraid to color outside the lines with new and unique cruise offerings never-before seen in the industry,” shares Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line CEO Oneil Khosa. “ARTSEA will provide Palm Beach locals, Winter Music Conference attendees and other travelers with the chance to experience this momentous sailing and witness live work from some of South Florida’s internationally-renowned street artists both onboard and on Grand Bahama Island.”
In between taking in breathtaking ocean views, mouthwatering cuisine and fun live shows, guests will have the opportunity to view these talented artists create masterpieces right before their eyes. Once on the island, guests can head to the bustling Bahamas Adventures’ all-inclusive beachside property hosted by proprietor Cesar Ochoa and continue to witness captivating art come to life, all the while enjoying a delicious Bahamian buffet of traditional dishes and beverages. Huge, colorful murals will be painted all over the property mimicking Wynwood Walls in Miami.
Internationally-recognized PEZ will be showcasing his vibrant, uplifting paintings alongside Chilean-born Dasic Fernandez and Venezuelan-born, Miami-based Slomo - known for his use of spray can work with color overlays and abstract pieces. The iconic duo, The London Police, will also be joining, who recently celebrated 10 strong years in the art world with work that has graced streets and galleries in 35 countries during this time. Illustrator and painter Cristhian Saravia “Golden 305” will also be in attendance for the trip alongside ARTSEA Curator and Producer Joseph Risolia. While onboard, guests will dance their way to and from Grand Bahama Island with beats from electro-pop duo Afrobeta- a staple of EDM stages around the world, and DJ Wags, who has been playing at the Winter Music Conference since 2012.
