South Florida is in no short supply of street art, urban muralists, and graffiti artists. Some stand out more than others and some carry heavy followings. Graffiti has been instrumental in the revamping of Wynwood and lifting South Florida's international art profile. That it continues to hold an illegal stigma is just part of the retarding nature of certain societal mores. In a few days, the art world will descend upon Miami once again for Art Basel and the city's graff will become part of the backdrop of many a magazine/website's photographic spreads.

One figure, key in the turning days of graff jumping from walls and into galleries, has been KOMIK28.
