Catch Spanish artist Dourone's vivid and vibrant figures on walls around the world, including here in Wynwood. 

birdcap

birdcap's murals often feature zany, wide-eyed characters with wavy limbs and strange expressions, but here he opts for texture and pattern, bringing something organic to the Wynwood concrete. 

MrDheo

Portuguese artists MrDheo brings a little bit of weird with him wherever he paints in the world. This Miami mural shows a sharp-dressed zebra, and loudly proclaims that "life is a work of art". 

zed1

Painting walls worldwide since 1993, Italian artist zed1 specialises in wonderland-style narratives and strange characters to communicate a kind of everyday philosophy. This large mural nevertheless contains the nugget of wisdom: "size is no measure of greatness". 

My Dog Sighs
