Wynwood Art Group (#WWAG) is the result of the recent merger of Brazilian artists, headed by Hamilton Aguiar, with Gallery 212 Miami and Miami (art) Publicist. Gallery 212 Miamiâ€™s NY-native Pop Artist Michael Perez is partnered with Miami Publicist Caitlin E. Slayback and they have spearheaded an innovative program to provide a platform for emerging, mid-career and professional artists by managing monthly exhibitions that feature fine art, photography, design, sculpture and even live performance. With a unique gallery business plan, Wynwood Art Group is essentially the result of this merger; a group of fine artists with great achievement in their careers forming a group to share ideas and to work with strategic marketing to create supportive platforms for artists. Wynwood Art Group embodies the dedicated interest of its members in contributing to the formation and the history that will eventually be remembered by the here-and-now crowd as the significant art and cultural movement of Wynwood.
The gallery has been in business for 4 years in this location and this year was awarded 4th place by the Local Top 10 at [Channel] 10 voterâ€™s poll of top local businesses. The building has been newly renovated and expanded into a multi-use space now encompassing the entire corner of NW 24th and NW 2nd Avenue in the heart of Miamiâ€™s Wynwood art gallery district. The neighborhood is famous for its art walls, attracting visitors from around the world who come to view and photograph them. The Wynwood Art Group building boasts a new and fantastic mural on NW 24th Street by Brazilian WWAG artist RogÃ©rio Fernandes. In the last ten years the almost completely abandoned warehouse district of downtown Miami has developed and blossomed into an art hub and the authentic gallery district that attracts masses of enthusiastic art lovers to its monthly Second Saturday art walks and annual Art Basel Miami; satellite fair to Art Basel, Switzerland and the largest, most successful and longest-running international art fair in the United States.
