Three shows to visit this weekend
The Wynwood Art District is one of the neighborhoods that concentrates high-level artistic spaces dedicated to street art and modern and contemporary art.
In the style of many cities around the world, the Wynwood art district of Miami has positioned itself as the mecca of the country’s graffiti walls.
If you want to discover emerging and innovative artists from Miami in the artistic area of Wynwood, we bring you three recommendations of exhibitions and shows that you can visit in the environment of this exciting artistic community located in an old industrial area.
Wet paint Miami
As the first itinerant group exhibition of the California-based artist, Dave Persue, in collaboration with more than 70 graffiti artists, WET PAINT MIAMI marks the group’s first presentation, after shows in the main art capitals in the world. Composed of the distinctive “Wet Paint” signs, the show also serves as an opportunity for the launch of a limited edition WET PAINT MIAMI clothing capsule collection with themes for the city.
The exhibition that opened on February 1 and will remain open to the public until April 1, 2020, includes collectible pieces of the artist Persue’s career, well respected in the international graffiti scene, both for his lyrics and for his famous BunnyKitty street art character.
