Trek 6

Trek6, the man behind the infamous “Boombox” in Wynwood, has been a contributing member of Miami’s booming street art scene since the late 80s with over a dozen murals throughout the great City of Miami. Taking his street art to the canvas, Trek6 celebrated the unveiling of his first solo exhibit, “Through the Looking Glass” at Hand Crafted Miami on Saturday, March 16th  with pure aerosol pieces that pay tribute to the likes of Andy Warhol and Jackie O sporting eyewear from the Eyemax Collection.

Trek6‘s “Through the Looking Glass” is an all aerosol portrait exhibition featuring 14 pieces of pop icons including Andy Warhol, Buddy Holly, Sofia Loren, Noam Chomsky, and Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels.

“I decided to do it all aerosol, to show how diverse aerosol is. Though most people associate aerosol painting with blurry, simplistic art, he points out, “You can do fine lines, really intricate work.” Trek6 (MNT)


The show was free and open to the public with free booze thanks to the generosity of Voli Vodka and dope music by local vet, DJ Tom Laroc.

Art has been a lifelong passion and pursuit for Trek6, dating back to his art upbringing in the 80’s where he studied under the mentorship of famous Puerto Rican painters. Most recently Trek has been participating in urban beautification projects all around the world. He represented Miami in Pow Wow Hawaii and worked again with Charles Juhasz and the EML Collective on a mural for Triufunal Polytechnico de San Juan for an exhibition named “Contrafuerte” in Puerto Rico. In 2012, his works were featured on media sites like Huffington Post and publications such as USA Today, Sun-Sentinel and The Miami Herald as well as had a mural showcased on the premiere of the Emmy award-winning baseball documentary “The Franchise” on Showtime as well as national Samsung commercial featuring LeBron James. He and his wife produced an Art Basel satellite event in 2011 called Co11ective, which showcased 11 bi-cultural artists and was selected as a Top 10 satellite event that year.
