Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

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.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
