Next art walk in Wynwood, on Saturday, April 9th, the Surface Merchants blast off with 100 feet of large scale interlocking wood-work blazed with shape-cuts and painted graphics. There's a pirate ship with true, steel port hole, a 15-foot tall woman, water, smoke, and monsters. Pieces jump off the wall in 3-D.

the trenches of Tamiami to check out the work. Krave said "Scale is everything. We wanna do something monumental."
