wynwood art

on a recent trip to miami, i went to the art district, wynwood, and discovered a whole other side to miami i did not know existed. bringing together major artists, the warehouse buildings are covered with graffiti and street art - each wall acting as a different canvas for each artist. i immediately was brought back to brooklyn or even graffiti filled areas of queens while walking around - except we were in miami and there were palm trees...and it was february and 78 degrees. what used to be an abandoned, sketchy neighborhood is now bringing loads of people to its streets piquing an interest in artists from around the world. i highly recommend an afternoon in wynwood and hope it only continues to grow.
