Museum Of Graffiti

The Museum of Graffiti exhibits, educates, and celebrates the thousands of graffiti artists who have transformed walls in our public spaces into vibrant masterpieces.


The museum is located in the heart of Wynwood. What was once a sleepy industrial neighborhood, Wynwood was transformed by graffiti artists into the largest open-air gallery in the world. Despite being a global arts destination, the Museum of Graffiti is Wynwood’s very first museum. While the main exhibitions are indoors, the Museum has programmed several of the exterior walls to present the work of today’s top graffiti artists.

    Gustavo Oviedo: Symbiosis

    17 Oct 2020 – 14 Nov 2020

    The Museum of Graffiti is proud to present Gustavo Oviedo: Symbiosis, on view from October 17 to November 14, 2020. Join us in unveiling the first look of Symbiosis on October 17, 2020. The artist will be safely greeting collectors all day, signing copies of his book and releasing a brand new print at 1:31 PM. Guests are encouraged to reserve tickets in advance due to limited availability. Gustavo Oviedo, now 39, was born in Paris but was raised in France, Colombia, Venezuela, and Mexico before finally relocating to Miami. In Miami, painting graffiti was a means to learn the city, connect with other teenagers and was a common language that helped him adapt to a new, foreign culture. With Miami’s art scene booming and adulthood calling, Oviedo broke away from the clandestine world of graffiti and decided to explore a part of Miami that didn’t include abandoned buildings and construction sites—the Biscayne Bay. Over the past 15 years, Oviedo has developed a highly personal, self-taught style of art that explores the relationship between the bustle of Miami’s vibrant metropolitan streets and the tranquility of the Biscayne Bay’s aquatic life, currents, and marine dystopia. Symbiosis includes large paintings of loose sea-like forms, mixed media collages, and visual representations of otherworldliness devoid of human language or graffiti letters. His palette is as colorful as the brightest coral reefs dipped in fluorescent pigments. His ocean discoveries of shipwrecks, corals, and found pieces of pollution give power to his creative output and to a body of work that is rooted in marine life and the impact of the streets of Miami he once painted. Oviedo’s work conveys the beauty of our waters but screams out that he is not naïve to the recurring problem of mankind’s disrespect for this natural resource. A main focus of the show is a piece entitled “Low Tide Shopping,” a massive suspended sculpture comprised of Styrofoam buoys found tangled in the mangroves along South Florida’s coastline. Another mixed media sculpture (pictured above) entitled, “Biscayne Bay Bottles” features glass bottles carelessly discarded into the Bay, dating back to the 1950’s, now making their way back to shore thanks to Oviedo. Several other new works will also feature 3-dimensional upcycled marine debris, juxtaposed with Oviedo’s adjacent giant fluorescent canvases.

    The Fabric of America: Artists in Protest

    18 Jul 2020 – 01 Oct 2020

    In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, the Museum of Graffiti will be opening a new exhibition on Saturday, July 18th titled The Fabric of America: Artists in Protest. Over 30 South Florida graffiti artists and illustrators were invited to create protest themed art on denim jackets in the tradition of the protests signs seen at marches. “Providing a platform for artists to contribute to the national discussion is important to the Museum and a way for local artists to join the conversation,” states the Museum’s curator Alan Ket, he adds, “These artists work in the streets but we have invited them indoors to engage in a dialogue of resistance with our audience.” “These wearable artworks articulate what you believe in at all times, without you having to say a word” said Allison Freidin, co-founder of the Museum of Graffiti. Included in the show will be an audio/visual installation that counts down to 0 from 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the time a Minneapolis police officer had his knee on George Floyd’s neck and video works by Chintz and Alan Ket. The exhibition also presents the photographic works of Pablo Allison, a human rights worker and documentarian who since 2017, has been following the migrant trail from Central America to the USA. Each photograph depicts powerful instances of protest graffiti that Allison captured on the trains used by migrants to escape inhumane conditions. Additionally, internationally recognized artists Futura 2000, Tristan Eaton, and Cey Adams will be contributing new posters that are in line with their staunch dissatisfaction with what has become our country’s status quo. The new exhibit ties in with the recently created large-scale mural titled AMERICAN HISTORY on the walls of two adjacent buildings at NW 25th Street and 3rd Avenue. Focusing on the Black experience in US history starting in the early 1800s through current day, the giant mural, curated by the Museum of Graffiti, tackles the subjects of police brutality, racial injustice, and resistance. (For additional info about the mural read press release here). The local artists participating in the exhibit include: Chillski, Crome, Tackz, Disem, Ahol Sniffs Glue, Cash4, Rasterms, Klass, Cyst, Grab, Tragek, Delvs, Quake, Ticoe, View2, Chnk, Jel Martinez, Etone, Rage, Daniel Fila, June, Keds, Junk, Meta4, Drums Brown, Santiago Rubino, Cale K2S, Ruth, Faves, Blackbrain, Echo, and Tierra Armstrong. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Empowered Youth, a Miami based not-for--profit dedicated to enhancing the lives of inner-city, at-risk youth. Their programs teach career skills that help to eradicate poverty and violence. They serve young men between the ages of 12-21, most of whom have been referred by the Department of Juvenile Justice. The Museum of Graffiti is open to the public with safety-first procedures including an admission system that only allows for 6 people to enter the premises every 15 minutes. Guests must purchase tickets in advance online or from their mobile devices as they approach the Museum in order to avoid onsite transactions.

    Shoe: Negative Space

    14 May 2020 – 01 Nov 2020

    A graffiti pioneer from Amsterdam, Shoe could be described as a poet on canvas, and someone who keeps pushing the boundaries of urban art. Meulman, is best known as founder of the Calligraffiti movement, his unique twist on an art form that mixes traditional calligraphy with the rawness and grittiness of graffiti. he exhibition entitled, Negative Space, will feature exciting new works by the artist presented in an immersive environment created by Meulman for the museum. According to the artist, “ Negative Space is an attempt to exorcise the negative energy that seems to rule everything around me lately.” Negative space, the space around and between the subject of an image, defines the boundaries of the positive and brings balance to the canvas so therefore is just as important. In this exhibit SHOE is reversing his perspective. Meulman says, “Every stroke I paint –calligraffiti or otherwise– creates a positive shape, but instantly, also a negative one. To paint and focus on these negatives is similar to a sculptor carving out a block of marble. Even when invisible, we should see that it is the negative space keeping the positive together.”

    CASH4: A Tough Pill to Swallow

    16 May 2020 – 16 Jun 2020

    The Museum of Graffiti presents a new body of work by the graffiti vandal Cash4. By serving as a voice of humor and political critique in a world gone mad with greed, corruption and drugs, the artist highlights the ridiculousness of our daily lives. The typographic works are reminiscent of the work of old school sign painters. His reclaimed signs convey messages that must be shared in order to wake up the world. Cash4 is a truth teller, a joker and a contemporary artist with lots to say.

    CES: ProCESs

    18 May 2020 – 18 Jul 2020

    Pro​ces​s introduces the work of renowned artist, CES (b. Robert Provenzano) who came of age in the 1980’s Bronx when graffiti artists ruled the subway system. CES’ paintings on canvas include arrows, characters, and wildstyle letters he has perfected over the past 35 years. The wall of illustrations celebrates the artist’s development of his own personal polymorphic style that bridges the gap between old school graffiti and traditional art genres such as still life, landscapes, and cartooning.
