I was staying in Barrio Bellavista, a bohemian neighbourhood in Santiago, known for street art, cafe-bars, and live music venues. So I spent one morning walking around the barrio, looked at the building architecture, and took pictures of the street art. I'm sharing a small sample here today.
The first two murals are outside Bellas Artes metro station by world-famous Chilean artist INTI. If you go to his web site, there is a video clip documenting the process when these two murals were painted in 2013.
The next five mosaic murals are on Dardignac street in Barrio Bellavista by Chilean artist Paula Guerra. The man in the first mosaic is Nobel Prize-winning Chilean poet, diplomat, and politician Pablo Neruda.
The following seven murals are by unknown artists:
In my next post, I'll share what I experienced on my walking tours in Santiago.
