Medellin Street Art


Medellin was a city once famous for its murder rate and for being home to notorious drug lord, Pablo Escobar. Having shed the shroud of its violent past the city has been hard at work and reform, and was named the world’s most innovative city in 2013 by the Urban Land Institute.

  1. Everything I’ve heard about Medellin’s street art sounds greta, but these photos are incredible! I love those colourful hyenas. 🙂

    1. Katie, the best part about the street art in medellin is how much of it there is. These images are just a tiny fraction of the urban art that can be found there. Oh, and by the way, Bogota literally took our breath away with its urban canvas.
