The gangsta wall in Wynwood is along the side of the Toe Jam Backlot, a private studio/event space that is available to rent. The mural on the north wall has nothing to do with ‘gangsters’ but it still looks wonderful – an amazing amount of detail. My apologies for not knowing the artist’s name.
The wall on the west side of the building is where the gangsta wall is. It’s a wall that features the images of “bad guy” actors in famous movies, starting with Jack Nicholson in “The Shining”.
Marlon Brando in The Godfather and Al Pacino from “Scarface”
… Al Pacino in “Scarface” (again), Robert DeNiro in “Cape Fear”, and John Travolta in “Pulp Fiction” …
….Arnie in “Terminator”, Malcolm McDowell in “Clockwork Orange”, a masked Anthony Hopkins in “Silence of the Lambs”, and Heath Ledger as “The Joker” …
…. and at the very end is the only woman, Uma Thurman in Kill Bill
As you have probably noticed, I haven’t named all the faces – still doing the research to find out who they are! If you can help, please let me know!
