Street Art in Latin America

Street art has become a huge part of Latin America’s urban areas. For many it is a way to express themselves on different societal topics like politics, race, and culture.

All over Latin America you can come across lively neighborhoods with unique homes, cobbled streets, and art. Lots of it! The great thing about street art is that you do not need to go to a gallery to appreciate it.

Main city centers have historical pieces such as murals by Diego Rivera in Mexico, or  “The Presence of Latin America” by Jorge Gonzalez Camarena in Chile. The largest street mural in the world “Etnias” (Ethnicities) by Eduardo Kobra is located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The following are some street art locations and murals you can check out while in Latin America:

Beco do Batman -São Paulo, Brazil


Vila Madalena – São Paulo, Brazil


Calle 26 – Bogota, Colombia


Bellavista – Santiago, Chile


Cerro Concepción – Valparaiso, Chile


La Boca – Buenos Aires, Argentina
