I love street art, grafitti, whatever you will call it – when it’s well done. I love what people come up with and looking at an otherwise boring wall on the side of the building that is suddenly turned into a work of art. I love seeing what is important enough to people to (sometimes) break the law to get a message out to the world. I’ve always taken photos of grafitti and enjoy seeing other cultures’ street art. I love that I am essentially capturing an otherwise transient item as mant pieces are not kept up and are often painted over. The following are some that I captured during my travels in South America.
Translation: “And my voice doesn’t matter?”
This is one of my favorites: “We need a world that reflects the best of us, and bring us our intense strength in your hands…”
Street Art from Chile is in a separate post due to more comments about Santiago 😉 Also, check out San Francisco, California Street Art Tour!
I love all the colors in South American street art and I love that they celebrate art this way instead of considering it graffiti. Beautiful — thanks for the photos!
I also love how most people view it as art rather than vandalism. I appreciate good art, whether on the side of a building or in a museum! thanks for visiting!
