Ron English just finished a mural and sculpture garden sort of installation in Miami as part of Wynwood Walls. I’m not a huge fan of pop surrealism myself (although I really respect what Ron and other artists in that genre do), but damn those Ron English fans must be going crazy right now looking at this thing. It’s a mural that then extends off the walls and includes some of his camo-dear sculptures (which I love). Hi Fructose has more images.
And Shepard Fairey has finished his installation at Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, as mentioned the other day. The restaurant isn’t open yet, but it should be ready for Basel Miami week at the start of December.
Also, some good news from Martha Cooper. According to her blog…
The City of Miami has taken a giant step forward by recognizing the value of street art and officially designating the Wynwood Arts District as the “Wynwood Mural Museum”. Under the auspices of Primary Flight, artists will be descending en masse during Art Basel 2010 to paint an unprecedented number of walls.
Also on Martha Cooper’s blog, you can find some more photos from what’s going on now at Wynwood Walls.
