Bogotá's Great Graffiti

Bogotá's colorful and opinionated graffiti - perhaps more appropriately called street art - turns plain and boring walls into canvases. Four prominent Bogotá graffiteros recently published a book called Calle Esos Ojos and created a website:, to display their work.

'Don't Turn the Other Cheek!'

This poor fish doesn't like pollution.
I understand that this face chiseled into a wall near the Palo Quemao market was created by an artist from Portugal, but I have no idea who it represents.
'We the ugly are much more beautiful!' boasts this mural on a construction wall beside the city's planetarium.
This huge mural on Calle 20 just north of La Candelaria was created by a group of graffiteros between Christmas and New Year's 2011. This image represents exploitation and the desire to fly free.
A mural on Carrera 10 near Jimenez denounces gender violence.
A giant alligator.
