Art Basel 2011 Photos of the Wynwood Walls ~ Murals

Mural: A very large image, such as a painting or enlarged photograph, applied directly to a wall or ceiling.

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”

I love where I live. South Florida is rich with culture.  I can jump in the car any day of the week and find something interesting.

This weekend was one of the largest Art shows on the planet = Art Basel
Art Basel Miami is an annual art exhibition held in Florida each December. It’s the sister event to Art Basel in Switzerland. Galleries from all over the world showcase works of art at various events around town allowing art lovers and collectors to discover new developments in contemporary art and experience rare museum-caliber artworks.

These are some captures from my walk around Wynwood Sunday afternoon.

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.” Henry Ward Beecher

“In art the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can inspire.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.” Oscar Wilde

“Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.” George Bernard Shaw

“Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.” Stella Adler
“As far as I am concerned, a painting speaks for itself. What is the use of giving explanations, when all is said and done? A painter has only one language.” Pablo Picasso

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” Aristotle

Some of the artists were still throwing up pieces while I strolled the streets on a windy December afternoon.

“Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do.” Edgar Degas

I have many more photos which I’ll post throughout the week.  I hope you enjoyed them.
Do you go to any art festivals/exhibits?
