Wynwood walls Miami – one of our top highlights on our Miami visit.
First the good news! We found an amazing apartment after our very long and frustrating search. The not so good news is that we acquired a lot of crap along the way and now have to unpack it all :-). I haven’t had time to write anything while we settle in and get to know the neighborhood. In the meantime, I’ve always wanted to share some more pictures from Miami, Florida. Get ready for an image heavy post of really awesome urban graffiti in the hip and colorful area known as the Wynwood District. We had a chance to visit last year after our cruise to the Dominican Republic. We spent a few hours in the neighborhood walking around and taking pictures of the amazing body or work by artists from all over the world. A former warehouse district, the late Tony Goldman conceived the idea of revitalizing the neighborhood by transforming the buildings into “giant canvases and bring the greatest street art ever seen in one place”. He wanted Wynwood to become a place where people would gravitate to and develop the pedestrian potential. I would say mission accomplished as the Wynwood Walls, and in fact the district has now become one of the must see places on any visit to Miami. We certainly enjoyed our time there. Here are some of our favorite murals.
Awesome Urban Graffiti Wynwood District:
Our Wynwood art walk was very enjoyable. A twist on Adam and Eve at Wynwood districts.
There are more than 50 artists and 16 countries represented at Wynwood. The art covers over 80,000 square feet of walls.
Wynwood Florida – a must visit in Miami! This mural is so cool and gives you a 3D effect, like you could be right in the street.

Another one of my favorites. There is so much being said in this mural in Wynwood district art.
This joint was jumping that day. We didn’t go inside, but l think if you visit Wynwood district, you should make an effort to visit the Brick House. The music was really cool, and the clientele didn’t look snobbish.
Wynwood district art: Love the seats too made of recycled tires. Those 3 somehow remind me of the 3 witches in Macbeth ;-)
This mural has so many, many things happening, all sex related. I don’t think l would want a young kid looking at it too closely. Definitely X rated! :-). Maybe l am just a prude, Ha ha!!!

Wynwood Miami art – I love everything about this mural, very zen. It’s also the one we’ve had the most questions about. Alas..we have no name for you on the artist.
