If the golden circle in the latest Wynwood mural by Jacopo "2501" Ceccarelli looks familiar, then you were paying attention during your art history class. The tribute mural to Max Ernst created by Ceccarelli transformed the white building on the corner of NW 29 street and 5th avenue, into an artistic statement that references "The Grande Foret".
Translated as "The Great Forest" one might think that the artist was influenced by his prolonged stay in our urban cement jungle; but the fact is that Ceccarelli has referenced Ernst in the past.

The west wall of Jacopo Ceccarelli's new Wynwood Mural.
The two sided mural spans across the full length of the building and carries the artist's signature brush strokes. Also noticeable in this piece are some new traces which are product of his recently created devices for "Tons of Tools". We look forward to Jacopo's return to Miami in the months to follow for "Miami Art Week". During his return visit, he is expected to complete several new murals and to continue with the production of his "Nomadic Experiment".
