Street Art of San Miguel

My previous blog was about the urban art that adorns the streets of Valparaiso on the Pacific coast of Chile. The urban art in Valparaiso is random and organic and has grown and evolved over many years. It is also intermingled with graffiti of little artistic merit.

This blog is about the giant murals that have been painted on the windowless end walls of tenement blocks in the San Miguel area of Santiago, in what was regarded as a run down part of the city. This is a deliberate attempt to rejuvenate the area and is in a very good cause. The result is a fabulous open air museum of beautiful high quality murals that can been seen by walking the streets. For those interested in seeing the murals for themselves the nearest Metro station is "Departmental" and the murals can be found on Tristan Matta, Departmental and a few on Carlos Edwards.
