Miami’s Wynwood is an outdoor art gallery for street artists. The Wynwood Murals were conceived by Tony Goldman in 2009 and brought to life in 2010. Since the Wynwood neighborhood is stock full of large of warehouse buildings mostly without windows those building were destined to used as giant street art canvases. Instead of arresting street artist, Graffiti is now considered a form of art and Miami is celebrating these artist by giving them canvas for the world to see.
Artists that can be found in Wynwood that I love are Invader, Retna, Shepard Fairey, and Swoon. While driving around the neighborhood the other day, I found this amazing mural featuring Audrey Hepburn, but have been unable to figure out the artist’s name. If anyone knows who did this street art, please comment below. I found a picture of the mural several places on the internet with the best shot of the Audrey Hepburn mural here.

I think graffiti that is commissioned to be art is beautiful, but graffiti that is put on private property without the owner’s permission is never ok or beautiful…so it depends.

I began my college career as a fine arts student so yes, I consider paint and a ‘canvas’ to be art! To me it doesn’t matter what type of canvas is used.
This street art and murals is such an awesome idea! What talent they have! I just love the one on Audrey Hepburn. I love your purse too! I’d love to have it myself!
