Miami’s Wynwood Arts District is full of street art. The area is located on NW Second Ave between 23rd and 29th Streets. It is divided into four sections: Wynwood Walls, Wynwood Doors, Wynwood Gardens and Outside the Walls. More than 80,000 square feet of abandoned warehouse walls have become the canvas of street artists and turned an old warehouse district into ‘the biggest outdoor museum in the world’.

Tony Goldman begun the revitalization of Wynwood in 2009; Goldman Properties has also revitalized SoHo and South Beach. Wynwood has become an edgy neighborhood with over 70 art galleries, boutiques, restaurants and bars. The entire area is covered in street art. Street artist from all over the world are invited yearly to transform the area for Art Basel during the first week of December.

    I’ve often wondered what defines street art vs graffiti. Is all street art sanctioned? Or do artists paint without permission,and if it turns out well, it becomes accepted and is called street art? In any case, all the art you’ve shown here looks amazing!

      A lot of murals are commissioned. Some I commissioned murals are completed in legal street art areas. Some is illegal but wonderful and the property owner keeps it. Some is illegal and the city white washes it regardless of how good it is, but that usually happens more with graffiti
