The I.D. Art Gallery building on the west edge of Wynwood is canvassed all across its exterior. The east facing wall of the building forms an alley with the building next door and is bombed with an MSG (Miami Style Graffiti) Day of the Dead production. The 10 a.m. sun formed a shadow against the bottom half of the wall so some of the pictures didn't turn out so well.
Skeletons sing, dance, play guitar, mourn and ride horseback across the concrete. You can see in the closeup shots that the wall has an uneven texture to it. TriaxxOne, who showed me this spot, told me it's a dedication to dead homies, one of whom was run over by a Metromover while graffiting. The wall combines graffiti letters with skeleton icons to great effect. Check it out.
You can find this wall at 676 NW 23rd Street in Miami:
