If these Walls Could talk….
A large scale collaboration over the years by artists from all over the world, the Wynwood District in Miami has become one of the best places in the world to wander around to catch a glimpse of graffiti and street art from some serious international artists.
Wynwood is on the mainland side of the city, nestled between Little Havana and Downtown Miami to the south, and Little Haiti to the north. It’s walkable, beautiful and full of gems to discover. The formerly (and sometimes still) abandoned warehouses and industrial buildings provide a constantly changing canvas for spray paint and wheat paste. And increasingly also housing galleries, restaurants, shops, arts complexes and an ever growing collection of tourists.
We, Chloe and I, had the chance to explore the Wynwood walls! Luckily, most artists tag their work, and after a little online detective work we were able to find out a bit more about some of the elusive artists behind these loud and luscious murals….and of course, it didn’t hurt stumbling across one artist in action ” LourdesEnFleur, who will be featured soon in an upcoming blogpost.
