Surface Merchants' 100-Foot 3-D Wall Takes Over Cafeina

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.

Three local artists who continue to make their mark on the city are responsible: Alex Yanes, Daniel Fila (AKA Krave), and Raymond Adrian (AKA Gems). We stopped by the Surface Merchants warehouse in

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