Miami can be a weird place, but I mean that in a positive way! Last weekend, the wife and I decided to venture south and after a brief food truck stop to start the day, we began a self-guided tour of Wynwood. We visited 3 breweries: Wynwood Brewing Company, Veza Sur Brewing Company, and Dogfish Head Miami. along the way, I snapped a few pictures of the graffiti that caught my eye.

Great photos!!! I love all of the color. This one is probably my favorite, due to the detail...Graffiti is so pleasing to look at.

Love those murals! They are wonderful. Montreal is also famous for theirs. IIRC they started painting walls/murals in the early 70's. Art students were given the paint by local businesses and offered walls to paint. I have no idea the impetus in Miami but the results are wonderful.

What I love is that every artist has left their Instagram profile as a signature; this isn't your run-of-the-mill gang graffiti, that's for sure! As to the why, I'm not sure.
There was more we could have explored, on Google Maps you can actually find "Wynwood Walls" which is a collection of even more murals. Unfortunately we were out of time as we headed to the next location before our dinner reservation. I will post some pics from the next location shortly: Vizcaya Museum & Gardens.
