One of the standout moments at Art Basel 2018 was spending time with my friend Wendy Fritz of the famous Fritz Gallery in Palm Beach and discussing the Mark Rothko painting and two Picasso paintings from the 1960’s.

When “Million Dollar Art Broker” Jimmy D Robinson enters Art Basel 2018, everybody freeze! Robinson loves Art Basel and striking a pose with the iconic South Floridian art dealer is a big part of all the fun. Since rising to prominence within the art world in the early 2000s, Robinson has become a central fixture at the most famous art show on the planet. This year was no exception.

“Truly the highlight of my year is when I get to attend my favorite art shows,” states Jimmy D Robinson. “I often ponder if modern art is a reflection of life or if modern life imitates art. For me, Art Basel, is a complete immersion into art. There are no walls and I absolutely adore it.”

Donning a signature designer Gianni Versace Couture vest, the main trademark of his celebrity persona, Robinson arrived sleeveless at the arty festivities with his partner, fellow artisan and international model Christian J. Perez and Miami model Jordan Polanco. Always hunting down the next big thing, Robinson peruses through the art installations while doing quite a bit of hobnobbing with all his colleagues and friends. Check out the exclusive Getty Images photos of Robinson and Perez with various attendees taken by Cindy Ord and edited by Jacqueline Romano here.
