Here’s another sweet video from the minds at Vernissage TV. This time, they are profiling the Wynwood Walls project that we have been covering all of last week at Art Basel. It was a pretty mind-blowing to see so many large murals from quality artists all in the same location, something that probably doesn’t happen without the influence of Deitch with the backdrop of the premiere art fair in the U.S. Discuss Art Basel here.

After opening his epic show last month at PRISM, Barry McGee moved on to Art Basel for his next project. For his Wynwood Walls installation, McGee covered an entire building with his signature geometric patterns, left plenty of tags, trademark imagery, and threw in an overturned car as well, smoke machine and all. AM spent some time salivating over the details on the site all the while documenting everything to share with you! More images after the jump…
AM swung by Deitch Project’s Wynwood Walls early yesterday to check out the massive mural installation, still in progress. Upon arriving at the complex, we were greeted by Martha Cooper (interviewed) who was busy taking shots of Futura, Shepard Fairey (featured), Os Gemeos and Kenny Scharf as they were busy installing their massive murals. With additional pieces by Aiko, Barry McGee and Swoon (interviewed), expect Wynwood Walls to present an impressive showing later this evening. More pictures after the jump.
