Wynwood is considered the largest street art district in the world thanks to the hundreds of artists who flock during Art Basel, and throughout the year, to repaint this famed Miami neighborhood with impressive murals and expanding works of art.
Similarly, thousands of visitors tour the Wynwood Walls and surrounding streets in search of the perfect photo with one of the thousands of murals that cover the once-neglected neighborhood. It comes to no surprise that The British publication The Telegraph named Wynwood the most instagrammable city in the world.
What once was abandoned warehouses and garage shops is now one of the hottest districts in Miami, Florida. It’s home to restaurants, bars, boutiques, and a few remaining art galleries. A quick search of the hashtag #wynwood on Instagram will reveal millions of posts: Fashionistas capturing the glamour of the walls, photographers finding the best light and shadows, and smiling tourists sharing their adventures in the form of selfies.
Forty-four of the most popular murals in Wynwood are now represented in a premium coloring book. The Wynwood Coloring Book comes packed with fabulous artwork of Wynwood. That’s right, a coloring book is the coolest souvenir you can get in Wynwood today. Coloring isn’t just for kids anymore. This exciting pastime that transformed into a global phenomenon taking adults by storm is also a fixture of the Wynwood culture. No visit to Wynwood is complete until you’ve taken The Wynwood Coloring Book home with you too.
The second edition of the Wynwood Coloring Book features top artists from Wynwood and the world, and it’s the first one of a series of one-for-one adult coloring books published by Aimful Books. Following the example of companies such as Toms Shoes, Warby Parker, and State Bag, every book sold is matched with a free textbook given to children and schools in need around the world.
Along with the fantastic street artists, Diego Orlandini, the author of the book, created an improved version of The Wynwood Coloring Book with all brand-new coloring pages. Selfies or not, now taking a piece of Wynwood with you is a lot easier and more affordable. “Our mission is to give you the opportunity to engage your creative mind while following the steps of your favorite street artists, reimagining the colors of Wynwood’s famous walls,” Orlandini adds.
