The Wynwood Arts District contains a massive collection of eclectic street art created by muralists from around the world. In fact, it’s one of the biggest graffiti installations in the world. It’s also home to tons of hip art galleries, museums, retail stores, bars and restaurants.

The district is located just north of Downtown Miami. You’ll find the majority of the murals between NW 20th and 36th Streets, from I-95 over to 1st Avenue.

Wynwood is pedestrian-friendly, so it’s a great place to wander about and explore the eye-popping art splashed across the many warehouses and industrial buildings. You’ll find murals as large as 40 feet tall, stretching on for multiple blocks.

2. Miss Van’s Sexy Ladies

Miss Van is one of the most famous graffiti artists in the world. Originally from France, she brings sultry female characters (who she calls “Poupes”) to the traditionally male-dominated world of street art. She’s one of the few graffiti artists who still uses a paint brush rather than a spray can.
