Art on the Street - Miami | Duende by Madam ZoZo

If there is a street art heaven, this might be it – Wynwood, Miami. Wall to wall splattered, stroked and sprayed with luminous colour in countless styles. My husband was slightly alarmed by the neighbourhood I appeared to be directing him into as we drove the Miami streets. Maybe I could have found a safer route, but Google Maps doesn’t have a car-jacking warning, so we crossed our fingers for no red lights as our surroundings made us increasingly uneasy. At the end of that unnerving road is one of the places I was most looking forward to visiting on our Florida road trip-Wynwood. The brainchild of real estate mogul Tony Goldman, Wynwood Walls is the epicentre of what has become an arts district; a showcase of some of the world’s best urban artists co-curated by Goldman’s collaborator, art dealer Jeffrey Deitch. With the success of the Walls, the project expanded far beyond the initial hub. A once derelict warehouse suburb has been gentrified by a thriving creative community who moved in and transformed abandoned spaces and blank walls. Let me take you on a tour of some of my favourite pieces in this open air gallery of Miami street art.

About author

Madam ZoZo

Hi! I'm Madam ZoZo, aka Zoë, an Australian designer, creative consultant, blogger and digital nomad. I'm passionate about travel, design, dance and new experiences that fuel my creativity. I strive to travel in a style that is gentle on the earth and that contributes to the communities I visits, even if it is merely to take away a greater understanding of a different culture. Duende by Madam ZoZo, is where I share the stories of my travels and the duende (soul/inspiration) I find along the way.
