Bhakti Baxter was born in Miami in 1979, where he is currently based. The artist has been an active protagonist of the Miami art scene since the early 1990s when he, Tao Rey and Martin Oppel transformed their house into an experimental art space.

His works range from naturalistic painted portraits of his family members to collages, surrealistic mixed-media sculptural assemblages of found objects (see his current show) and go beyond any attempt of categorisation.
