    Romero Britto’s Wynwood gallery space was vandalized by a graffiti artist on the same night as a monthly art walk in the area, Beached Miami reported.

    The name “C Dog” was painted Saturday onto Britto’s new gallery space, located at 146 NW 25th St. A picture provided by Yo Miami shows the black building covered halfway up the wall by the graffiti.

    The tagging was done the same night as the Second Saturdays Art Walk, a monthly event in Wynwood and the Design District that draws visitors with music, art and food, according to the website.

    Britto artwork has been vandalized before, as a Miami Shores piece titled “Beach Ball” has been spraypainted several times with the words “Not Art,” “Meaningless Bliss” and “error,” Beached Miami said.
