Art Wynwood 2014 turned out to be an interesting mix of works displayed by international galleries, special projects and street art showcase.
Nearly 70 international galleries like Pan American Projects and Robert Fontaine Gallery from Miami, Aureus Contemporary from Rhode Island, Dillon Gallery and Emmanuel Fremin Gallery from New York, Byard Art from Cambridge, UK and Witzenhausen Gallery from Amsterdam in The Netherlands, showcased a diverse range of works by established,
mid-career and emerging urban street artists. Noteworthy was definitely also the special project by Spinello Projects featuring neons by Typoe, a 24ft drawing by Santiago Rubino and a video installation by Antonia Wright.
Street art received a lot of attention at the third edition of the fair. In collaboration with Cash, Cans & Candy, an international festival of street art from Vienna, Austria, curator Katrin-Sophie Dworczak lined up a global who’s who of street artists like Miami locals Douglas Hoekzema and Brandon Opalka, Stinkfish of Colombia / Mexico, The Stencil Network and Alexis Diaz of Puerto Rico and Stephen Tompkins of Cleveland to create original works onsite. Additionally, Jessica Goldman of Goldman Properties commissioned the murals for the VIP Lounge, including works by top street artists like Miss Van and Fafi.
