London Graffiti Wall Artist, D-Face Love Is The Answer Mural in Wynwood Arts District is GONE

Recently, one of Wynwood Art District’s first and most iconic walls painted by London UK street artist, D-Face was returned to basic white. While the Seminole building is iconic in its own right, yet most Wynwood patrons know the building because of the “Is Love The Answer or Love Is The Answer” graffiti mural which was painted by D-Face in 2013. Unfortunately, around Valentine’s Day, February 14th of 2018, this mural went bye-bye. It saddens me that photographers can no longer shoot this building that Casa Wynwood resides in. At the same token, they do stop to photograph the Casa Wynwood and Wynwood Lab sidewalk graffiti.

Fully decked in my new $39.90 lace maxi dress I kissed my favorite wall art mural in all of Wynwood good-bye.

Before the D-Face Wynwood Wall Returned To White, My Last Photoshoot

Before the wall came tumbling down, I insisted on taking a few final shots. Even though my REAL nails are prepared for my trip to Italy, my heart was not ready for this mural to come down. Aside from walls and paintings, in the past two years, I have REALized life has changed.

Saying Goodbye To My Grandmother & D-Face

Starting with my Grandmother Martha left me with this Mary Francis purse. Sadly, she’s gone, but I continue to carry her fashion on my world travels. One of my favorite phrases is: “Are you ready for this Martha?”

No matter where I’m called, and no matter if I’m speaking on social media or providing new market introduction services for foreign brands into the US, I am always REAL and READy!

My Grandmother was the one who taught me the difference between REAL pearls and fake ones. FYI: These are FAKE aka. costume jewelry.

Not bad for a $39.90 lace maxi dress and the taste of an 85-year old woman, right?

Mine & Martha’s Fashion & Art Favorites | Gucci & Mary Frances

Before my fashion icon, Gucci’s creative fashion director Alessandro Michele was the Gucci creative director, another fashion icon of mine and my grandmother’s is Mary Frances. While Mary Frances only creates purses, they are exquisite! My mom and I used to sell them in our Ambiance Interiors & Gifts store when Mary Frances first launched. These were one of the only gifts my Grandmother Martha adored. Mom and I created “The Purse Wall” in Casa Wynwood for Art Basel Miami Beach to honor my Grandmother.

Christi Tasker
Christi Tasker For more than 10 years, Christi Tasker was a nationally acclaimed award-winning retailer and interior designer. While she treasured and nurtured her gift boutique and interior design company, she ultimately discovered her true passion – MARKETING and BRANDING! With an eye for detail that only comes from a skilled and experienced designer, Christi learned the secrets to creating a clear, concise brand – one both unmistakable and unforgettable − that would stand out from the crowd. The interest in marketing and branding for businesses actually had its beginning in her family. As did many devoted moms, Christi shadowed her then eleven-year-old daughter, Macy, whenever she ventured online. On one particular day, Christi had an epiphany as she watched Macy scour MySpace for any news in the virtual world of “Webkinz.” Christi placed an order for those lovable furry friends, with their special codes for use with online games, and when they arrived, she shared the news on MySpace, not knowing at the time that she had crafted her first social media campaign. When the college gates went down on Facebook, Christi immediately became one of the first non-college friends of Facebook. And more than just a casual user, she quickly discovered a side of Facebook that only programmers knew about – The Facebook Developer − full of options and tools to help companies better use the web. Christi quickly recognized that marketers either needed to be formally educated about social media or needed a partner to manage their sites. She launched a social media marketing company, which today provides social media branding, strategy, monitoring and training worldwide. Before long, she realized her ability to keep up with her many social media accounts was hampered by the lack of a suitable tool to keep everything in one place. Christi decided the best way to do a job properly was to “do it yourself” and developed PuTTin’ OuT (Socially Accepted) a set of tools to moderate, manage, create, schedule, and publish content, and automatically engage people, all in a single package. In early 2009, Christi began traveling nationally as a social media expert speaker for various brands and businesses, and today is a sought-after social media keynote speaker at the foremost conferences worldwide. she also appears on NBC as a social media advisor/expert.
