More than twenty artists from around the
world are currently painting large contemporary "Wynwood styleâ€ murals in
the halls of the Canvas condo tower in downtown Miami, developed by NR
Daniel â€œKraveâ€ Fila was commissioned by
the developer to organize a group of artists and curate the project. See video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MGoYl1KAxg&feature=youtu.be. Once finished,
the project will include about 200 original works of art, with 56 large-scale
murals on 27 residential floors, plus original prints, photographs and
additional framed paintings throughout the 37 story building.
â€œIâ€™m having a blastâ€, said Fila, â€œAll the artists that are
involved are very enthusiastic, because the client has given us such freedom
and support from the very beginning, to be ourselves,â€ Fila said. â€œItâ€™s going
to be a very special project by the end, I donâ€™t think there is going to be anything
like it, and I couldnâ€™t be prouder of what itâ€™s become."
Canvas is at 1630 N.E. 1st Ave. in Miami,
situated west of Edgewater and adjacent to the Wynwood Arts District. The
37-story building will include 513 total units. The studios, one- and two-bedroom
residences will range in price from $386,200 to $630,000 and in size from 690
square feet to 1205 square feet. The building is expected to be completed in
the third quarter of 2018.
