Blog

A collection of photos and captions from the 1970s that capture the city’s graffiti history, as well as the work of the iconic artists who inspired it.

The collection includes a pair of pictures that show the artist and the artist’s wife, Dora, in a car.

 The couple’s two children were also present.

The caption reads, “We are not famous.

We are just like you.

And we want you to be proud.”

Dora’s caption reads “My dad’s like me.

He is a carpenter.

I love him.

He’s just like me.” 

The captions, in the same vein as the ones from the car, include this: “She loves him.”

“My mom is the same way.

She is the carpenter, but she is more beautiful than her husband.

It is a great family, they are like us.

They are our family.” 

Another caption, written by the woman, reads, “We want to love her like we love us.

She is so beautiful, like me, and she is so smart.””

She loves me, but I don’t love her,” Dora continues.

“I love her so much that I don�t want to die.

My mom loves me like she loves her.” 

There is also a caption from the artist, who painted on a wall behind a garage, where he painted a picture of himself as a young man.

Dorsa’s caption says, “I am my mother.

You know how it is.

Her name is Dora.” 

“It is her love,” Dorsa continued.

“It is the love of a mother.”

“The best love is love,” she continued.

Dora had two sons and a daughter and her husband worked for a local contractor.

When the couple divorced, Dorsas son, David, became a police officer in Miami, where his mother had lived for decades.

In 1976, the couple moved to Coral Gables, Florida, where Dora continued her career as a police sergeant.

In 1985, she moved back to Miami.

Dora continued painting murals and sculptures in the city.

One mural, entitled “Lavender and Lime,” was painted on the front of a building at the corner of Miami Avenue and Miami Boulevard in Miami Gardens.

Another mural, titled “The City and the Sea,” featured a painting of the cityscape, with an orange sky and white palm trees.

More recently, in 1986, Dory was found guilty of burglary, conspiracy and criminal mischief in connection with the graffiti in Miami Beach.

At the time, Dorias son was serving as a detective for the Miami-Dade Police Department.

A year after Dorys conviction, she was sentenced to 20 years in prison, with a maximum of five years for the crime of burglary.

She was released in 2010, after serving eight years in jail, for a probation violation and for failing to pay court costs.

Her next conviction came in 2008, after she was released from jail and returned to Miami Beach, where she lived for nearly a decade before moving back to Florida. 

In 2010, Doras husband was convicted of burglary and sentenced to 15 years in state prison for the same crime.

According to The Miami Herald, Dori Mott Rudolph and her wife, her mother, her brother, her sister and a nephew were convicted in 2016.

They were sentenced to life in prison with no parole eligibility.
