Major art shows like Wynwood’s Spectrum and SCOPE on South Beach boasted some of the most uniquely crafted works of art, from hand sculptures inspired by Future’s DS2 album, to thematic visuals hinting at the current unrest around the country. Swizz Beatz’s “Dean Collection” and Lenny Kravitz’s “Flash” exhibit displayed equally curious paintings and photographs, some of which seem to be telling stories about struggle and freedom.

In addition to the highly anticipated works by designer Sue Tsai and photographer Jonathan Mannion, this year’s attendees were also treated to some much needed material by a slew of Latino artists, including Alex Yanes and Sergio Garcia, whose extraordinary illustrations and other visual pieces called for your undivided attention.
