Art Basel 2014 is in full swing in Miami, with over 50,000 art lovers exploring exhibits at more than 1,000 galleries. Buro 24/7 shines the spotlight on Hunter & Gatti's latest body of work...

Fashion photographer duo Hunter & Gatti, comprised of Cristian Borillo and Martin Cespedes, are celebrated by those-in-the-know for their painting skills, as well as their lens use. In this latest exhibition, the duo present a series of photographs – with each artwork compromising two stills: The original, and their painted-over version.

Christian and Martin were inspired by Michel Basquiat's neo-expressionist artworks and the moment in the artist's career that his work captured the attention of art dealer Rene Ricard, who promised to make him a star. 

For their Art Basel Miami exhibit, Hunter & Gatti have compiled painted over editorial and campaign photographs they shot of cultural icons such as Pharrell, Bruno Mars and Diane Kruger.
