Daniel Fila  Krave Art contracting 20 plus street artists to create custom work for Canvas Condos in downtown Miami

Canvas Condos

CANVAS, a Miami condo that topped off this week, has announced street artist Daniel “Krave” Fila will lead the curation of a large collection of original artwork that’ll be housed on the walls of the project’s corridors and common areas.Over 200 original works by more than 20 artists from all over the world will be on display throughout the 37-story tower that’s currently rising at 1630 Northeast 1st Avenue. The installation will be comprised of 83 original murals with at least 162 framed prints.Krave, a Miami graffiti artist best known for his signature character, “The Fresh Monkey,” wants Canvas residents to “feel as though one is living within the threads of a canvas.”“Imagine you’re walking out of your condominium and you see this vibrant, larger-than-life mural,” he said. “That’s going to create a feeling, an experience. That art is going to stimulate you, sometimes challenge you. There will be mural concepts designed to spark interaction between one another – something residents can talk about and come together around. It’s so much more personal than, say, walking down a sterile white corridor to your ‘unit.’”
