These flamingo silhouettes graced the construction site signage of a renovation project on South Bayshore Drive in Coconut Grove [Miami, Florida]. Miami is romantic; Latin flavors, vibrant nights, warm breeze, sunglasses. Even industrial work zones find a way to show the city love.
ART INSPIRED THOUGHT
A Photographic Artist's Well-intentioned Ramblings
Creative murals have a way of taking you on a journey. In the heat of Miami's Wynwood neighborhood, this snorkeling siren rides a scaly dragon. Where is she going? How did she tame the dragon? Why does she need snorkel gear? How does she keep her hair so smooth in such a humid climate? All great questions.
Every so often, a commissioned wall project gets whitewashed in favor of giving a new artist the spotlight, a prime position on a blank canvas. This week, a few new images released straight to the web [see StreetArt gallery].
