Last week, I was lucky enough to go to Miami for the first time, and check out some of what Art Basel and Design Miami and the ten million satellite events have to offer. There was far more going on than I could have seen on one visit. One definite highlight of the trip was The Wynwood Walls, the jewel of Miami’s Wynwood warehouse district. [View Photos]

I posted about the incredible project by Spanish collective Boa Mistura in São Paulo earlier this year. They painted huge, bright murals which read words like “beauty” and “sweetness” across several buildings, when viewed from the right perspective. Now there’s a great 17min documentary out about the eye-catching project. The Vimeo page has some more info about it. Via Arrested Motion. [Watch Video]

ROA in WA

I’ve posted a little bit of ROA’s work here in LA before. Here’s a nice feature of ROA’s latest work in Perth, Western Australia, over on Wooster Collective. Even though I’ve never actually lived in “the most remote city on Earth,” it’s sort of my hometown in a funny way. It’s a beautiful place. Here are some more West Australia photos from a trip there last year. EDIT: My mother very kindly pointed out that 2/3 of those photos are definitely in Sydney. Here’s a real photo of ROA in West Australia.

Wandering artist Above has struck again. This time, he’s painted a political message on the exterior wall of the Jewel City diamond trading center in Johannesburg, South Africa. Check the full story behind this latest work on the Vimeo page.

Trippin’

Two weeks back, I made a road trip to SF. It was my first time back there in about 16 years. It was great. Can’t wait to go back. Here are some photos I shared via Instagram. [Read More]
