A dedicated post to the amazing Wynwood District graffiti artwork. 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 colourful 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 revitalising the neighbourhood by transforming the buildings into “giant canvases and bring the greatest street art ever seen in one place”.
The intention was to make Wynwood become a place that people would gravitate to and therefore 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 favourite murals from this colorful section of Miami.
