Miami may have some of the best beaches, bars and boulevards of any destination in the USA, but once you have burnt you skin along the shore it’s time to head inland to see what the city proper has to offer. Wynwood is at the heart of the Art District, where former warehouses have been converted into boutiques and trendy eateries and the walls are lined with paint. I often write about different street art hotspots along my travels, but Wynwood really takes the cake. The epicenter is the Wynwood Walls, an official and permanent project showcasing internationally renowned graffiti artists including some of my personal favourites Miss Van, Swoon and Maya Hayuk.
This established space has encouraged others to come to the neighbourhood and paint every surface – the scale itself of the amount of art being created here is awe inspiring. Looking through my photographs I realised just how many interesting pieces caught my eyes – I’ve therefore had to break my post into two just to help the pages load! Hopefully this will encourage you to leave the sun lounger, if just for the afternoon, if you happen to be in Miami.
