Thanks to the efforts of organizations such as Primary Flight and Wynwood Walls, the Wynwood district in Miami is undergoing a radical transformation through art. The neighborhood boasts an incredible density of walls painted by some of the world’s most renowned graffiti and street artists, many of whom have made the annual pilgrimage to Miami for Art Basel in recent years. I, too, joined the throngs on the streets of Wynwood this past December, eager to experience and document the work of artists from far and wide.

Below is a selection of mostly new walls, with a smattering of older pieces for good measure.
