If you look close enough you can see the history of Wynwood in the art, being an industrial village it was full of the working class men and women. For a long time it was called “Little San Juan”, or known as “El Barrio” since many Puerto Ricans began immigrating to this neighborhood from the islands and northeastern cities in the 1950s.

Midtown Miami started developing in 2005 between North 29th and 36th Street and Miami Avenue and the Florida East Coast Railway (FEC). Because of all this new attention, it also brought popularity back to previously abandoned warehouses that are now occupied by artists, restaurants, cafés, and lounges.

Tony Goldman, a developer, played a major role in the growth of art in Wynwood by creating a mecca out of the already present graffiti. 30 artists traveled from around the world to create what is now the Wynwood Walls, this was the stepping stone for the art that has now grown to be all over Wynwood district.

Amazing  ‘Free Lolita’ mural after the Seaquarium Orca was created by Clandestinos—a husband and wife team with the wild pseudonyms Shalak Attack and Bruno Smoky.
