Incredible Street Art of Latin America

Street Art Latin America

Street art is very common in the cities of Latin America. Walls, houses and ruins are full of it and it is an integral part of urban culture. In cities such as Cartagena, Panama City and Sao Paulo, you can find incredible street art that is overwhelming in size and complexity. With the region’s tradition of social movements and political instability it is no wonder, that a lot of the paintings have a political or social message. These colorful and vibrant pictures are more than just scribbles on a wall; they tell stories and leave a lasting impression.

Here is a collection of my favorite street art of some Latin American countries.
