One of Ron English’s most celebrated contributions to the show is the vibrant Temper Tot mural at the Wynwood Walls, among a collection of massively intricate murals by a variety of artists.

This colorful tot draws crowds all year and with the hot Miami sun, the paint takes a beating from the elements. While visiting Art Basel this year, Ron took the opportunity to give Temper Tot a little touch up.screenshot-2016-12-08-at-10-25-33-am
