Completion Year: December 2018

Comments:
These murals are located at Midtown five condominiums in downtown Miami. The theme was contemporary luxury meets Wynwood Graffiti. We used a mix of techniques from fine art brush, airbrush, stencils to spray paint. We mixed our paint, prepped the space and got ready to work. We always take into consideration the level of detail and colors in each artwork we create. With these particular murals we ensured that our spray paint colors weren’t too bright and blended more with the colors of the bright blue glass windows.
