During Art Basel days in Miami, numerous street artists come from all over the world to leave their marks. Wynwood Art District comes alive and opens doors to art fairs, pop art galleries, special openings and events, but not all of them are commercial… Re-imagining the Arts in Wynwood (RAW) was run in 2014 with the goal to bring color, inspiration and develop schools art programs (covered). With over 80 artworks and an excellent result, the project expands as a nationwide campaign and invites more artists to Eneida M. Hartner elementary school this year. Greek artist INO was among the first invited artists. He used his art to make a statement about the environmental disaster that mankind is causing to this planet. Titled as “FAIL”, the mural depicts a person trying to smell a dead flower while wearing a gas mask. Using his gray-scale color palette with touches of light blue, he finished the piece with a blue horizontal line “deleting” this image.
