This post is part 1 of 5 in the series Street Art in the Americas
Street art in Cartagena, Colombia is alive and well with works by modern graffiti and street art legends from Colombia and around the world, including DJ Lu, Lik Me, Fin DAC, Yurika MDC, M.R. Love and DEXS, mingle with historic Colonial architecture in this UNESCO World Heritage site city. The city’s Getsemani neighborhood is the heart of Cartagena’s street art scene, particularly on Calle de la Sierpe which was the site of 2010’s Pedro Romero Vive Aqui (Pedro Romero Lives Here) street art project. Some of the original work from that project still exists and new pieces are added all the time. Here are some of our favorites.
