French artists JR and Andre meet up at Art Basel 2012 and created a Miami Design District mural.

The large-scale black and white piece merged both the artists' specialties. JR is known for his eyeball prints and Andre is known for his playful graffiti style; the two partnered up and were able to create a cohesive piece that is visually stimulating. The boys focused on the large white wall and utilized the blank architectural element to harmoniously fuse their techniques and manifest a lingering art work. The main focus of the mural is the giant eyeball stick figure character that literally combines JR's signature eyeball and Andre's squiggly characters.
