Street art & People in Bogotá

A Colombian woman passes in front of steel hoarding panels, covered in random scrawls and territory tags, in La Candelaria, Bogotá, Colombia, 19 February, 2016. A social environment full of violence and inequality (making the street art an authentic form of expression), with a surprisingly liberal approach to the street art from Bogotá authorities, have given a rise to one of the most exciting and unique urban art scenes in the world. While it’s technically not illegal to scrawl on Bogotá’s walls, artists may take their time and paint in broad daylight, covering the walls of Bogotá not only in territory tags and primitive scrawls but in large, elaborate artworks with strong artistic style and concept. Bogotá has become an open-air gallery of contemporary street art.
