Once again, the Wynwood Arts District became the capital of the street art world during Basel Week Miami. With artists from around the globe painting on every corner of this lively neighborhood and related events happening at local bars, clubs, galleries and parks, one of the main events was surely going down at Wynwood Walls. This year, the outdoor museum of street art ran by Goldman Properties added a nice new selection of fresh works to their existing collection.
The main area got fresh new piece by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic who painted yet another piece inspired by Martha Cooper’s (interviewed) photograph, adding a bit of a Picasso twist to it. Next to him, Cryptik meticulously worked on his intricate new piece, while the Amsterdam-based duo The London Police worked on another futuristic scene involving their iconic lad characters. Nearby, Alexis Diaz introduced his first ever sculptural piece.
Outside the main area, Fafi created a floral explosion around her sexy female characters, the Chilean Inti painted a beautiful new image using his recogizable palette and selection of symbols and patterns, and Crash (featured) created a mural featuring his iconic pop graffiti takeover. The other section was reserved for a double portrait piece from Hueman right around the corner from Case Maclaim’s huge “walking hands” piece. Opposite of that was El Seed’s new abstract pattern composition and where Logan Hicks worked on his gigantic stencil piece. Spanish duo PichiAvo also created an impressive piece on stacked containers, presenting their clever mix of ancient Greek visuals against raw graffiti tags and throuwups.
