Nicky Jam Is Honored With His Very Own Mural in Miami
While some fans are binge-watching the new Nicky Jam series on Netflix, others are out on the streets making art in tribute to the Latin superstar.
In honor of his career in music and more, Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot honored Nicky with his very own mural in Miami Beach during Art Basel week. Artist Domingo Zapata was in charge of painting the masterpiece that’s located outside a building on 17th Street and Collins Avenue.
Earlier this month, the Puerto Rican singer, who’s a brand ambassador of Hublot, launched his watch collection, Big Band Meca-10 Nicky Jam, in three versions, according to Haute Living. Now the brand has gone all out with a special mural dedicated to the singer.
On Monday (Dec. 10), Nicky shared a photo in front of his mural, stating on Instagram: “Thank you for this detail. God bless you, very grateful."
Check out his mural below, followed by four other works of street art dedicated to Latin artists.

CAMILA CABELLO - mural in Miami
This took my breath away. I was in Little Havana just a week ago because I love walking around there and taking in all the sounds and smells and sights of Cuban culture- in miami we’re 90 miles away, but here - hearing Cuban music, seeing these murals with Cuban artists, and walking through the domino park- I feel so connected to my family and my roots- this is soooo beyond cool and it made my heart skip a beat!!!! ------------------------------------ HAVANA OOO NA NA.

SELENA QUINTANILLA - mural in Texas
A year ago during a podcast I told the good people at @decoloresco I wanted to paint a mural of Selena in Oak Cliff and preferably off Jefferson. They told me, don’t worry, we’ll find you a wall. A year later they reached back out asking if I still wanted to do the mural. “Uh, yeah! Of course.” “How much would you charge?” They asked. “Nothing” “Nothing?!?” They responded. “Yup, nothing.” It was important to me to give my time and skillset as a gift to a people who do nothing but give. This community is beautiful, and so rich in history, I wanted to give them something back instead of the trend of gentrification that’s taking so much from the area. Oak Cliff, this is my gift to you! The mural is located on the side of Top Ten Records at Jefferson and Bishop. Go check it out. Take pictures. Tag me. --: @lorettagonzalez
