The Wynwood Walls

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. It’s an enclosed collection of warehouses with huge walls painted by the likes of Nunca, Shepard Fairey, Retna, and Jeff Soto. It was conceived and curated by famous Miami developer and street art lover Tony Goldman. That and the surrounding area (block after block of heavily painted warehouses, many by world famous artists like Krink, and Os Gemeos) creates an undeniable street art mecca, with more amazing work stuffed into one neighborhood than I’ve ever seen in my life. I almost didn’t know which way to turn – it seemed there was incredible street art in every possible direction. Here’s some of what I saw.
