Fantasy Fest Key West 2018

Update: I feel like we say this every year, but I can’t believe how amazing of a show it was in Key West! We had so many of our favorite collectors come back to see us and added many more to our collector family. Fantasy Fest 2019 will be here sooner than you think, so start your planning early. You guys rock!

It’s so hard to believe that Fantasy Fest Key West 2018 is already upon us. Scotty is back at their familiar location at 511 Duval Street. He will be debuting some incredible new art inspired by his trip to Europe.

This show is always the wild week that everyone loves to attend. Scotty and Angie love to see all the creativity and body paint that is the essence of Fantasy Fest.

We love to see pictures of collectors with Scotty so make sure you tag it with #TastefullyEdgy and @fineartbyscotty.
