Wynwood Walls and Miami Murals

Miami, FL

The Wynwood neighborhood, a little north of downtown Miami, underwent a transformation over the last few years to become Mecca for street art. Wynwood is currently an epicenter for both unknown locals and high-profile street artists like Shepard Fairey.

A couple of days ago, our friend Piper took Nicky and myself on an art walk and we came across the Wynwood Walls. Some of the murals (on both walls and doors) from this outdoor exhibition featured an array of international artists including... Shepard Fairey, Aiko, Retna, Ron English, Ryan McGuinness, Faith47, and the legendary Lady Pink (Guatemalan who gained notoriety for being one of the lone female graffiti artists tagging NYC subways in the late 70s and early 80s).

Here are some of my favorite pieces...

And yes... to quote Johnny Drama, "I love my fans!"
