Best Graffiti in Bogota, Part 1

During the 5 months I lived in Bogotá, Colombia in 2012, I was fascinated by the quality of graffiti and street art. Having lived in New York City for years, I assumed I was in the Graffiti capital of the world, and yet was very unimpressed by what New York had to offer. When I got down to Colombia, though, I was blown away.

Here are a few of my favorite images, mostly from the La Candelaria district of Bogotá.

I’d like to hear your thoughts, let me know in the comments!

One of my favorites. There are several iterations of this image around the city.
