Wyn­wood Walls mu­ral un­veil­ing

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Showtime - Palm Beach - - ART -

10 a.m.-mid­night Dec. 4-9 at Wyn­wood Walls, 2520 NWSe­cond Ave., Mi­ami; free; TheWyn­woodWalls.com

“Beyond Words” is the theme of this year’s mu­ral un­veil­ing, fea­tur­ing new works by Por­tu­gal’s VHILs, Brazil’s KOBRA, Illi­nois’ Ron English and six other artists. Visit on Tues­day, Dec. 4, and you may spot Obama ‘Hope” poster mu­ral­ist Shep­ard Fairey spin­ning mu­sic be­hind the DJ turntable. Note­wor­thy is Vhils, the artist moniker of 31-year-old Alexan­dre Manuel Dias Farto, who cre­ates wall mu­ral por­traits by drilling and carv­ing into build­ings with power tools. (His pro­file rose after one of his por­traits at the 2008 Cans Fes­ti­val in Lon­don was dis­played next to a Banksy art­work.)
