The best thing about flight to North America: I finally manage to get up early due to the jetlag. And I even get to see the sunrise for once. With a hotel next to the beach in South Beach: even better. But what isn’t beautiful in Miami? Beautiful people, beautiful beaches, beautiful light – beauty was born in Miami. And on top, Miami is full of art – like at the Wynwood Walls.
Wynwood Walls: The famous walls of Miami
You will find the Wynwood Walls a bit off the bustling beaches of Miami in – surprise! – Wynwood. Actually, the Wynwood Walls are not only a few colored walls, they are a open air museum with shops, a café and an art gallery, where you can buy your favourite pieces of art if you have some money left. Entrance is free, but if you really want to enjoy the art and take some nice photos, I recommend to come early before hordes of tourists arrive.
Even if you are much into art – the Wynwood Walls are like a playground for grown-ups. Everything is colorful! You may touch everything and even climb onto some of the sculptures. And the bright Florida sun makes the colorful walls even more impressive – impossible to leave without a good mood!
This is the entrance to the art gallery, where you can buy several pieces of the artists who designed the walls:
The whole district of Wynwood is the art centre of Miami. You will find a lot of galleries, art spaces and studios here – and a whole lot of street art. Just wander around the streets and start discovering on your own!
Where to find the hottest street art in Wynwood and Miami
In some shops you will find maps with the best street art spots, but as it changes so quickly and almost every week new pieces of art are popping up, I recommend to just walk around the streets. I’ve been so impressed by all those colors. ideas and inspiration, I could have spend the whole day there!
By the way, near the Wynwood Walls you will find this famous mural by Brazilian artist Kobra:
