Miamism Fridays - Name this Wynwood Art

Let's change things up a bit.  We usually just feature a great photograph in our Miamism Fridays series, but now we want to add a twist.  If you follow our Facebook page, you know that once in a while, we play a game called "NAME THIS MIAMI BAR" - we get all kinds of interaction from Facebook and Twitter and have a lot of fun with it.  This will be similar, we will be including landmarks and special art pieces throughout Miami to see if you recognize them.

Make sure you scroll down to the end of this article and click on "comment" and leave your 2 cents.

This photo was taken by ChrisGoldNY who we've featured here in Miamism.com several times.  He took this photo somewhere in Wynwood.

Can you tell us where?  Can you identify the name of the artist? Tell us anything you know about this piece.

It's all for fun, promise you won't be graded!

Thanks for tagging me, Ines. I think this statue is at the Wynwood Kitchen & Bar.

Woo Hoo Alex!! Yes it is!! I thought this would be easier, since to me, it's such a stark and recognizable figure.
