STREET ART #23 – the colorful city of Valparaiso, Chile

Valparaiso is one of the most colorful cities I have seen. If you want to know about the artists, the meaning behind a mural etc you book a walking tour with a guide But you do not need a guide to find the murals.





Just keep walking and you will stumble over an immense amount of street art. Not only on walls, but doors, stairs, benches......





Street art is used to express both political and social opinions. It started as a silent protest under the regime of Augusto Pinochet in the 1970s and has continued until today.





I did a walking tour with a guide in the areas of Alegre and Concepcion. I was amazed and captivated. Every house in every street has paintings. I took a lot of photos that day. I am sure I took a hundred photos. It will take some time to get them all sorted out.




Please do follow if you want to keep up with my next street art. Any upvotes or resteems are hugely appreciated!

You captures some of very interesting murals. I particularly like the one with houses and plants hanging from somewhere - very cool.

I'm thinking which city that I visited had the most murals and I can't decide between Barcelona and Lisbon. Actually Berlin has quite a few as well. But I've never seen as many as you showed in your post :)

Impressive! Thank you for sharing!

Thanks. I had heard about the street art in Valparaiso before I went there, but I did not expect that much. A real cool place. Shortly I will post more and share more about the city and the street art. It is a most amazing city when it comes to architecture and street art. I have not been to Lisbon or Barcelona yet, but on ny list😁

So many beautiful works. Thanks for all the great photos!
