Jorge Olave, the artist who made the mysterious green men on La Candelaria's balconies, has an exhibition going on in La Candelaria's La Peluqueria hairdresser's/art gallery/music venue.
Olave's photographs turn examples of urban decay into urban monuments, and he turns his green men-in-waiting into symbols of official corruption.
