Wynwood Walls

Of course, I couldn’t visit Miami without seeing the Wynwood Walls.  This place was so special to me I thought it deserved its own article!  Anyone who appreciates art could get lost wandering through these murals for hours.

There’s a main plaza through the Wynwood Walls sign (as seen above), but there are literally paintings to find throughout the entire neighborhood.  Once you think you’ve seen them all, you turn a corner to find another building covered.

Remember to look down too; you’ll even find cool tags on the ground.

You’ll see lots of work by ATOMIK all through Miami, so get used to this face:

I could tell Fabes was in his element at Wynwood, he loves bright colors.  The following images are a gallery of his shots, taken during our trip to The Walls:

(Looks like Ron English and one of his “Temper Tots” made a visit to Wynwood!)

Within the art walk is a small cafe that serves drinks and frozen yogurt incase the heat gets to you.

While you’re in the area I also recommend visiting some of the galleries.  We went to GAB Studio and I was pleasantly surprised with the work inside, especially the photography of Bridges Aderhold (owner) and Coco Moni.  We also saw the Miami Ad School, but we weren’t sure how to get inside… Either way you have to see the murals on this building; just walk around the iron fences surrounding it.

As you can see, by the end of the day we had plenty of great pictures.  So, if you need some cool additions to your Instagram profile… this is the place to visit.
