The second Saturday of every month the Wynwood Marketplace becomes home to the Wynwood Art Walk Block Party.

Hosted by Swarm Inc., the event is responsible for bringing in an array of local artists and vendors, and up to 10,000 visitors. 

Not only do  participating artists showcase and sell their work, but many also create their pieces before a live audience.

Among them are Victor Bernardez, the director of marketing for Swarm, and Tamaris Sepulveda of the Augmented Gift Shop.

A fan of paintings and acrylics, Bernardez is a huge fan of Andy Warhol and bases many of  his pieces off of Warhol’s style.

Inspired by one of his favorite movie franchises, Bernardez’ signature piece, portrays the famous  Star Wars character, Darth Vader, dripping in paint.

To this day it is his most successful piece.

Sepulveda, on the other hand, is the face of the Augmented Gift Shop brand which brings art to life using the technology.
