For November's art walk, the streets of Wynwood unleashed a flood of visuals before the full climax of Art Basel. It felt good, it felt right, and our shoes are still sticky. Check out some of the stuff we saw, and tell us about whatever we missed, sometimes there's just too much, and you've gotta save something for next time.


People are funny looking. Over at the University of Miami's Wynwood Project Space artist Ricardo Zulueta showed great blown up portraits of humans posed in their (actually the artist's collection of) underwear. According to the artist, that dude on the left with the fanny pack wrote a bunch of gangster music as the scoremeister (yeah, composer) worked as a "sound director" for some Martin Scorcese films.

Area 23 also impressed with their arsenal of super-expressive Latin

American work. They showed five artists and the pure white lighting in the joint is

always great.

Next door, at Harold Golen Gallery, the art of N! Satterfield brought skulls, pop, and this hell hath no fury like a woman scorned image done with stencils and aerosol. Fans of comic books, people who like the idea of comic books, but don't actually read them, and folks who appreciate clean lines and bold colors should always check what's in stock here. Golen also has cool books, and T-shirts available.

Butter Gallery kept it Hood (as in John Hood, below, center), literally, with Francesco Lo Castro's recent work depicting local movers in portrait form.

and the TM Sisters.

The Miguel Paredes hype machine that keeps his gallery perpetually full

is a good addition to the neighborhood, and the guy does some pretty awesome

work, like this Scottish Samurai.

Tattoo and graff heads will definitely appreciate the newly opened Evl World gallery which has all kinds of photo, mixed media, and paint work inspired by the streets and presented alongside the likes of this voodoo bear.

Comic Ed (as in comic education) was out on the Avenue feeding the streets with knowledge and encouraging people to read in physical reality.

We got some great advice on how to live at David Castillo Gallery from the Xaviera Simmons solo show that deals in humans, nature, and human nature.

And, by the way, big ups to Castillo and 42 Below Vodka for doing liquor sponsorship right. Drinks are served free of charge in the space behind the gallery from four different bars (one in each corner) in unique flavor concoctions with a friendly and knowledgeable bar staff talking about, pouring the product, and dialoguing with guests amiably while a DJ plays in the background.

We walked up NW 2nd Ave drink in hand and not a single cop harassed us....felt like a Nas song (If I ruled The World) except with liquor instead of weed. The lady at Gallery ID asked us not to stand too close to the Bobby O'Neill Freedom Town prints on display lest we mess them up. Good advice and great exhibit.

The best installation we saw was at NOW Contemporary Art where Federico Uribe's "Once Upon A Time" transforms a warehouse into a forest where trees are made of books that are made of trees. Fuckin awesome.
