Street Artist Atomik
Last Updated March 02, 2018
Why We Love It: Street artist Atomik’s iconic oranges are, well, everywhere – he figures he’s done between 1,000-2,000 works here. In 2012, Adam created the Welcome Little Havana mural on SW 8th St. and 27th Avenue, and this year he was tapped to do the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana building at 1400 SW 1st St. and all the artwork as part of Carnaval Miami’s new look. He also does mainstream work for clients like Nike, Duvel beer, Anheuser-Busch and Modelo. We talked with him while he was working on the NAPA Auto Parts storefront in Wynwood. “It’s an honor to be part of the Carnaval Miami roster,” he says. The Miami-born graffiti artist, whose parents are from Puerto Rico, created his whimsical orange character in response to the demolition of Miami’s Orange Bowl. Today, versions are found on ornaments, beer glasses, tote bags at Bloomingdale’s Aventura, and, of course, on walls and buildings all over the world. Looks for Atomik signing posters at Carnaval on the Mile.
