After the pulling the cover off of a controversial collaborative mural with fellow graffiti artist Risk a couple weeks back, Retna (featured) bounced down to Miami last week to get a leg up on his fellow artists for this year’s Wynwood Walls. Originally conceived of by Jeffrey Deitch as a clever way to revitalize the debilitated Wynwood Arts District during Art Basel Miami, the annual outdoor art gathering has blossomed into an all out assault by graffiti legends, street artists, and contemporary art figures alike as they target every last bit of wall real estate in the area. As with last years, along with its inaugural year back in 2009, the mural project has become a mainstay of Basel Miami and a must-see for street art fans.
