After a week in snowy and chilly Manhattan pounding the pavement at Fashion Week (and I'm not complaining), I made it back to sunny Miami just in time to catch the Art Wynwood exhibit in Midtown.
The exhibition, now in it's third year, showcased 70 art galleries from all over the world and featured an eclectic mix of modern and contemporary art pieces from an array of artists. With Wynwood at the forefront of street art, the festival saw an emphasis on emerging street artists and on it's main player- the Wynwood neighborhood. It's not surprising that Forbes Magazine named Wynwood one of America's best hipster neighborhoods, and the influx of talented artists, have helped elevate this flourishing part of town into a vibrant canvas of self expression. Turn the corner on any street in Wywnood, and every wall is splashed with an impressive work of art that stops tell a story or convey a message.
Art Wynwood let's you get lost in a creative mash up of pop, street, modern, classic, contemporary, and abstract art. And they all harmoniously coexist under one roof for the viewer's delight.
Here are a some of the pieces that I loved most from my Sunday visit to the white tents.
Art is a matter of opinion and what speaks to one person may not speak to another. And these were the ones that stirred me and spoke to me loud enough to snap a pic.
