Yesterday we drove to The Wynwood Walls, an outdoor mural exhibition by Deitch Projects in Miami. With an inside area allocated to the murals we found Futura, a change in his work was evident with new color application and flow however the spiral atom’s were a dead giveaway, Shepard Fairy with a striking wall of faces which had been posted up earlier, Kenny Scharf, Aiko, Clare Rojas, who had a striking painting of two people, one showing the other a specific spot on which to look which was extremely captivating, and Nunca.

On the surrounding block outside we found Os Gemeos, a typically faced mural of a mystical land of water and boats, Barry McGee who covered a nearby buliding in his geometric patterns of green, red and white next to a rolled over ute and Swoon, a dream-like image with plenty of movement and life spanning over the corner of a building which the team were still working on as we walked past.

Surrounding galleries were benefiting from the audience that Deitch had drawn, but their inside space was fantastic in the fact that it had a durational photo gallery from each of the contributing artists and their teams taken by Martha Cooper. Something that was definitely worth having as the grand scale of the murals was enough to get intrigued by the in’s and out’s of their personal procedures.
