we drove by this enormous mural and i could not believe its size! so... ofcourse we parked somewhere to take some pictures. i was disappointed with them back home, but it was hard with so much sun and shadow at the same time... :( this is in the wynwood art/fashion, which used to have mainly abandoned warehouses, but recently has many art galleries and studios. and, as you can see, walls that are painted by street artists. apparently, there are 100s of murals around this district, which are there legally!!, making it one of the biggest street art districts in the world (we did not see that much, but the wall next to this one was beautifully painted too, i will post that some other time).
above "the sunbather" by daniel fila, which was completed less than 2 months ago. since 8 years, fila paints this wall, but never a piece this big. next to the wall there is some sand, so it seems that she really is lying on the beach. on purpose i pictured the billboard above it. as you can see, this mural is really huge! moreover, it illustrates an interesting question posed by the street artist banksy; what is defacing the neighborhood more?
