Urban Canvases – 24 Street Art Snaps from Medellin

After an extremely long hiatus, the occasional Urban Canvases series resumes today with this set of 24 nearly forgotten images of riotously colorful murals, scribbles and scrawls found over a five or six block stretch near San Ignacio Square in Medellin’s Candelaria district during my first visit to Colombia in May 2013.

Four years on, how many do you think still exist? If you can identify any of the artists, let me know so I can credit appropriately.

Of these, the celebration of Pachamama, or Mother Earth, above is my favorite. Disney War, with the stencil portrait of George W Bush, gets the nod for Most Amusing.

Enjoy!
