Valparaíso Street Art

Valparaíso is one of the most renowned places in the world for street art. Murals, tiled art and vibrant colors are everywhere you look.

“Magnify the world. Make it better and when you have gone, the earth will miss you.”

Pablo Neruda

Art can be found on almost every wall, doorway and edifice.

Some of the paintings make powerful statements, including many about the indigenous Mapuche people.

Beautiful art brightens Valpo’s buildings in decay.

A husband and wife team of street artists collaborate on impressive murals.

Portraying the Mapuche’s ongoing fight for their rights.

The stairs are also a feast for the eyes.

Even Frankenstein gets his moment in the sun.

Fish are an important part of this port town. However this chef and her knife looks a bit dangerous.

Artists are even commissioned to paint high rise buildings.

Nesting dolls?

Wild dogs roam the streets of Valparaíso, but are loved and fed by the locals.

Valparaíso, my love.
