SUV crashes into artist’s studio in Liberty City

Addonis Parker was painting inside his Liberty City art studio around 3 p.m. Wednesday when an SUV barreled through the front door.

​“I am trying to understand how this could happen,” said Parker, in disbelief. “There is tens of thousands of dollars in damage.”

​No injuries were reported at the scene, in the 6200 block of Northwest Seventh Avenue.

​The first thing Parker did was inspect his landmark mural of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. near the crash, at the intersection.

Parker recently restored that mural.

​​Parker also was commissioned by Miami-Dade County in 2012 to restore Purvis Young’s mural in Overtown. Last year, he represented the Global African Diaspora at Art Basel Miami.
