Toy Story

We're always on the lookout for art that seeps outside of the streets of Wynwood. This month, South Florida screen print artist Rocky Grimes is exhibiting and selling his one-of-a-kind designs at "Normal Absurdity," an art show at Kidrobot in Miami Beach.

As far as Grimes, you may know him for his clothing line Faction, fresh t-shirts with neon and pastel color palettes that depict savage scenes of hipsters behaving badly. (On one, a masked vigilante is decapitating someone else with a Casio keyboard.)

Otherwise, you may have seen Grimes's work at Dustin Orlando's comeback show "Believe the Hype" earlier this year. And during one Art Basel, he was that guy pushing a cart through Wynwood streets, doing live screen printing for the masses, deliberately outside the walls of corporate-sponsored art shows.
