During our Art Basel Miami stay The Wynwood Walls were definitely one of the highlights. Actually the entire Wynwood Art District impressed us and was a great alternative to the otherwise very glamorous art scene and events that were going on throughout the week.
The Wynwood Walls is an outdoor mural project by Deitch Projects and Goldman Properties.
“Fifteen influential artists from Asia, Europe, Latin America (Aiko from Japan, Os Gemeos and Nunca from Brazil, Stelios Faitakis from Greece, and Jim Drain, Shepard Fairey, Futura, Barry McGee, Ara Peterson, Clare Rojas, Kenny Scharf and the team of Swoon, David Ellis and Ben Wolf from the United States.) and the United States have been invited to create outdoor murals on the warehouse walls of Miami’s Wynwood Art District. Tony Goldman of Goldman Properties, one of the major property owners in Wynwood, has made available a group of walls and buildings for artists to work on, concentrated in the area between 2nd and 5th Avenues and NW 22nd and 28th Streets. The project also includes an indoor space at 2550 NW 2nd Avenue where paintings by several of the artists and documentary photographs by Martha Cooper will be exhibited.”
