We veered east of North Miami Avenue in Wynwood this week to track down street art in the few block towards the railroad tracks. Although it's not as wallpapered with paint as the blocks to the west, we stumbled upon a trifecta of awesome murals at Northeast First Avenue and 28th Street. A holdover from Basel season 2010, the above was painted by New York street artist Fumero. To see pictures of The Grandpa is progress, see his blog. What does it take to create a two-story abuelo? Thirteen hours, a motorized lift, and plenty of Skittles-colored paint.

Around the corner, we saw this rainbow-hued black hole:

And this black-and-white, tattoo-sleeve-like piece wrapping the building adjacent to the tracks:
