Graffiti art promotes Miami neighbourhood

Local businesses turn industrial wasteland in US state into world's biggest outdoor gallery for free art.

    A US neighbourhood is being touted as the world's biggest outdoor gallery for its displays of graffiti on walls, buildings and businesses.

    The Wynwood arts district is essentially a blank canvas for the world's best graffiti artists and it is attracting global visitors for its free art.

    Wynwood Walls, previously an industrial wasteland, was conceived and developed by the local business community and art galleries, the main driving force behind the project.
