Wynwood Street Art (Miami, FL)

The Wynwood neighborhood, located just north of downtown Miami, is a transformed urban warehouse district. It started with street graffiti and has blossomed into a collection of galleries, eateries, and breweries. The raw feel of street art is still the main draw. Murals seem to go on forever.

St. Petersburg Street Art

These are images from Florida’s expanding street art scene. St. Pete has an array of new art in countless alleys and in the warehouse district. Several of these images were recently painted during the “Shine”St. Petersburg Mural Festival. 

Buenos Aires Street Art

The streets of Buenos Aires contain a world class art gallery. Porteños, as well as local government officials, are customarily in favor of large murals.  With an abundant supply of high rises and industrial areas, it is not difficult for an artist to find a canvas. Building owners even contact prominent street artists in order to add some color to their walls. Historically, graffiti spiked around the 1983 transition to democracy, and then again, during the 2001 financial crises.

Street art in Tartu, Estonia.

Street art is thriving in Tartu. This small university town in Estonia has an incredible amount of picturesque alleys. One interesting facet of the art is that much of it is located in hidden locales. While walking down dirt roads in the countryside, a piece can be discovered on the side of an abandoned building or the side of a small apartment building. Tartu is much more than street art though, quiet streets lined with cafes and parked bikes offer a more authentic way to experience Estonia than touristy Tallinn.
