During Art Basel, a lot of people found themselves going from one event to the next. What they did not realize is the real action was in Wynwood. An insane amount of graff writers and street artist had taken over the streets of Wynwood. I was invited by Samuel Mark, an influential artist from New York, to come by and film the wall he was working on. Samuel and a few other artist created an amazing mural that mixed graff and street art. Signifying graff writers and street artist are equal to one another. They do what they do for one reason and that is to occupy as much wall space as possible. If you ever find yourself in Wynwood, I urge you to go check out this amazing wall, located at NW 2nd Ave and 22nd st. To all the artist who participated, Stay Up, Go Big, and Never Quit. Samuel Mark, Fumero, AOM, Abso, Sev,Veks, Velo, Lost, Alec Monopoly, Werds, Eres, Leaf, Json, Meno, and Beaso, you all did an amazing job! (Click the photo's to enlarge)

He did it again, and trust me its worth the stop to admire and catch a flick. His style is unlike any other and you can tell he knows exactly what he is doing. He told me himself, "I am a perfectionist" and it shows through his artwork. I have much respect for Fumero and hope all his students understand how lucky they are to learn from a master. I've also included some action shots of my homie at work.
In the spirit of Art Basel Miami, Del Toro Shoes and Miami Street Art put together a spectacular event. We were able to get 18 amazing artists to design the classic Del Toro slipper, made of canvas, with their own unique style. Even Pharrell Williams designed a pair for the event, but it's more like he autographed them. Everyone who attended, was amazed with the shoes and the event was a great success. Visit Del Toro Shoes for information about the different styles of shoes that are available. WE LOVE ART BASEL MIAMI!!!

My brother is back in Miami for Art Basel 2011, and his solo show was extremely successful. His show took place at Avant Gallery, which is located on South Beach. If you are in Miami, go check out Alec Monopoly's collection, which will be open to the public for viewing.
