"Vespa street art tour" in the Wynwood Art District

In order to get away from South Beach and its beaches full of bimbos in bikinis, one must head to the Wynwood Art District to take in the arty air of this city that has emerged as the new scene for North and South American artists. The landscape of this area has always been dominated by warehouses and small factories. And during the economic crisis, when companies were forced to put the key under the door, street artists took to the walls of the warehouses as huge canvases. As it is impossible to cover the entire neighborhood on foot, fortunately Roam There offers a Vespa tour to discover the most beautiful pieces of street art. Driving your own scooter, you follow a route provided by a cool and clued-up guide. They will explain the stories behind the graffiti to you and let you in on all the current artistic clashes happening in the street. It’s fun and informative. And undoubtedly the best way to discover this up-and-coming district. It is a must to pass by the Ricart Gallery which presents pictures of the French artist Peggy Mella whose work is called “Fragment”, based on extensions, coloring and deconstruction of the image, gives rise to a style that’s abstract and graphic on an XXL scale. And don’t forget your sunglasses…we are in Florida after all! A helmet is not required to ride on two wheels. But sunglasses, definitely! So different, so crazy, so Miami!
