Bogotá's Newest Street Art Street

Bogotá's newest graffiti street runs between the Santamaria bullfighting plaza and the Colegio de Cundinamarca. But if you look for it, don't get confused: It's not the primary street, with the hotel and fancy restaurants, but the obscure one right above it, with the parking lots and cultural center.

The street was painted in the past weeks by local artists sponsored by the cultural center and street art organizations. My favorite of the works is a send up of bullfighting, with the tables turned and the bullfighter stabbing the bull.

Inside the cultural center, a
portrait of an indigenous man.
It's unfortunate that, it being such an obscure street, not many people will ever see this art. But we often pass thru the street during are bike tours, which include lots of graffiti.

The cultural center's two dogs.

An indigenous guardsman.

The bull's revenge on the bullfighter.
