In our second post on street art we are going to take you to Bogota, Colombia. Street art in Bogota has become one of icons of the city.
Calle 26, for instance, is one of my favorites. It is actually a pleasure to pass by and watch all the different pieces of art. You can see criticism and nonconformity but also hope in those walls.
Check out this video called ”This territory is ours”

Homage to Jaime Garzon, assassinated comedian, activist and journalist. Personally, this is one of my favorites beause of the art itself but also because of what Jaime Garzon, although was killed, still represents for me and for Colombian society.
This is the picture of the whole wall…
… and other nice pics
