First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then a Baby, and an Angry Monkey

No Miami graffiti column would be complete without this highly-visible mural on 37th Street and Biscayne Boulevard. Miami's Daniel Fila has been adding and subtracting from this wall over the years, with the approval of building owner Chad Oppenheim. First it was a 13-foot-tall naked woman viewed from behind. But then some prudes came along and covered the derriere with white paint.


In response, Fila painted and Adam & Eve,

a nude male and female who appeared shocked to be gawked at. But after

the complaints that the face looked way too much like a gal named Erin,

the female morphed into the likeness of Shakira. And as sometimes

happens after k-i-s-s-i-n-g, the duo soon popped out a baby. See more pics after the jump.
