The Graffiti of Bogotá

graffiti-1

The first thing that I noticed about Bogotá was the graffiti.  It was everywhere!  In all different styles, colours and complexities.  It must have bothered Alana, but we walked all over La Candelaria, the neighbourhood that we were staying in, so that I could photograph it.  I loved it.  Every unused space was covered in grafitti.  Some of it was political in nature, often using Banksy stencils, others offered a social commentary and still others were just for fun.  Regardless, the graffiti was beautiful.

  1. Thanks for checking out my blog! I love these graffiti pics and just today Cornell University hosted 40-some graffiti artists and had them display their work on an abandoned building, so it’s especially fun to see this particular story.

    • Congrats on the Freshly Pressed! I really enjoyed your post.. thanks for returning the favor and checking us out. That display at Cornell sounds amazing.. we have a love affair with graffiti art, but it seems as though we’re not the only ones! Good look with your blog!
