I met William The Poet a few weeks ago. William had his poetry stand at Backyard Boogie. I only had my iPhone 5 to document the experience. It was unexpectedly dope to be in the middle of that situation.
About the poem consultation:
William’s approachable demeanor made it easy to speak to. After a quick Q&A there it was, my personal poem. Thanks William.
2Alas & Jason Fittipaldi’s exhibit last night was DOPE! It was raining so I was only armed with my iPhone 5. Here are some images of the show. The exhibit is located directly across from Wynwood Walls at 2509 NW 2nd Ave and will be up till Art Walk tomorrow June 8th.

Street artist KAWS is the fifth living artist to have a floating balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The city of New York allowed Macy’s to use one of their trains to market the event. If you’re in New York you can catch the KAWS all over art subway going exclusively from Grand Central 42nd street to Time Square.
Maybe the City of Miami would allow an artist to wrap one of the Metro Rail trains…

Jipsy who’s been a part of Miami’s nightlife for quite some time had a solo photo exhibit this past Saturday. She called it “SECLUDED.” It’s based on a woman enraged with her boring suburban life after being taken away from the city during the 1950s. It shows another layer of Jipsy as an artist. Congratulations Jipsy great show!
You can still see the exhibit at THE WORKSHOP 171 NW 23rd Street, Miami, FL 22127. It will be until mid November.
Last Saturday during Art Walk I ventured into a few galleries I had never seen before. Amongst them I visited NOW Contemporary Art. I liked what I came across so I’m going to share it with you. The exhibit is called “RIGID” Graffiti in MIAMI. The installation will be up till October 31st, 2012. Before I forget,NCA is located at 175 NW 25th Street, Miami, FL 33127.
Last Saturday during Art Walk I was invited to the limited release of Del Toro x A. Mijares slipper collaboration event. Matthew Chevallard Del Toro’s creative director keeps things exiting. This time featuring artist A. Mijares designs on a Del Toro signature Black Slipper. A. Mijares puzzle style skull is a perfect match for the classic silhouette which is available now on their online store.
I have to admit it’s a challenge to visit the Del Toro studio without wanting to buy one of everything…
Thanks to Matt, Mijares, Morgan and the entire Del Toro family for the hospitality.
Artist RETNA is no stranger to the Miami street arts scene. His work has been adorning the streets of Wynwood for quite some time. I stopped by Louis Vuitton new location in the Miami Design District to see him in action.
I saw the opportunity to approach him as he came across the street. With a warm smile I extended my hand to shake his. After I introduced my self we talked about Miami. He said “I love Miami.” We talked a bit more and then he excused himself and went back to work.
I was impressed! Retna is one of the illest street artists in the world. Salute to you RETNA keep blessing our streets with your art. I can’t wait to start my personal RETNA collection. Check out his site HERE
