Miami-based artist Douglas Hoekzema, also known as Hoxxoh, creates incredibly beautiful kaleidoscopic murals. By layering different colored continuous rings, he can turn a plain wall into a hypnotizing portal-looking mural that makes you feel like you could be sucked in if you stand too close. With his art, Hoxxoh wants to show people a different way of viewing time. Rather than trying to control time, he believes people should let its course take control. Basically, his art represents what happens when we let go. As a street art pioneer, he’s created over 20 murals around Miami and brought more than 100 artists to Wynwood. Currently, he’s doing most of the exterior art on Wynwood’s first hotel, The Arlo Wynwood, which opens in October; ArloHotels.com/Hotels/Wynwood.
