Miami’s Graffiti Wrecking Crew – MSG
Vice Gallery x Miami Style Gods (MSG)
Scan Miami, South Beach and surrounding areas and you’ll find an invigorating and endless expanse of throw ups and murals done by the infamous Miami Style Gods (MSG). Since the early naughties the crew has been tagging Greater Miami with psychologically probing pictures and palettes that has produced a compelling visual culture and incandescent cityscape. From Washington street and Wynwood to Brickell and beyond, witness the scintillating surfaces, crackling colors, flagrant vandalism, cryptic messaging and real deal risk-taking.
Twenty years on MSG are still precision bombing the city’s infrastructure, systematically applying their craft to as many walls, highway signs, bridges, billboards, and abandoned buildings as they can find. From the Design District and Downtown to San Fran and Stockholm, Miami’s rogue and raw spray can samurais are famous for their gnarly visual syntax and hard-bitten hieroglyphics.
Lucky for us, VICE Gallery in Wynwood will put on an exhibition featuring the MSG warriors and their storied work. The gallery re-opens next month with “They’re Not 16 Years Old Anymore,” exploring some of the crew’s fibrillating forms and fields of irradiating colorways that have added extra pizzazz to Miami’s concrete jungle. BIG UP to Omar Khan, who organized and curated the spectacle!
Vice Gallery in Wynwood re-opens next month with “They’re Not 16 Years Old Anymore.” It starts Thursday, October 9 and lasts until October 31. Address: 47 NE 25th St., Miami. See you there!
