Chile is full of stunning street art.
Throughout Chile, large and small towns, are decorated with amazing open-air art, that is valued by the country and citizenry.
In Punta Arenas for example, the local government issued a statement saying that street art, “is a cultural manifestation, scenery which makes the walls more attractive and vital.”
The Punta Arenas city council actually financed a 400 metre section of street art.
They actively encourage street art in other parts of this most charming southerly city.
Santiago, Valparaiso, and Puerto Montt, all have a plethora of amazing open-air art.
Post the repressive Pinochet regime,
Chilean citizens exuberantly embrace and exercise their artistic talent and freedom of expression.
Walking amidst these amazing street art displays, is a wonderful experience.
Cheers to you with Chile’s stunning open-air art~
