There was no escaping the madness that was Miami Art Week. While collectors and art fans alike were inside taking in all of the fairs and staying dry, more street artists than ever before descended upon the Wynwood area to leave their mark. Heavy rains and wind posed a challenge for most, but that could not keep artists like D*Face, Twoone, Nychos, Tristan Eaton, Boxhead, 1010, Caratoes, and countless others from killing several large-scale walls and collaborations. Among our favorite projects this year included the “Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans- Art Basel Miami” series, an entire block curated by Urban Nation and PangeaSeed Foundation, where murals by artists like James Bullough, Jason Botkin, NEVERCREW, Li-Hill, and Aaron Glasson addressed issues of climate on the world’s oceans. Another highlight was the all-female “Wander & Wayfare” wall, a collaboration between 7 female artists, which started as an idea by Hueman and was co-organized by Rocha Arts. Not far away, the Wynwood Walls complex was given a makeover as the Wynwood Walls Garden, which debuted with a special celebration featuring murals by 14 international artists including INTI, Alexis Diaz, Logan Hicks, The London Police, Miss Van, and a flowery installation by FAFI. Check out more of our street art highlights from Wynwood below.
