It's that time of year again when hoards of artists, art lovers, and people who want to be seen are preparing to flood the 305 for Art Basel Miami Beach in December. Berlin street artist MTO got an early start this month by painting this portrait mural sponsored by ADJUST Gallery. The mural features a hyperreal portrait of a man spelling out the letters "M" and "O" with his hands and the letter "T" painted on his forehead. The title of the piece is "RoadTrip" and the word appears on the subject's shades where "Rayban" should be. 

The art is great and we think it's the perfect way to kick off next month's events. For more information about Art Basel Miami Beach, check out the related links below.
