Many of Bogota’s houses are tagged and many other have beautiful graffitis. Some of them are a real work of art. But not everybody is happy with this kind of art.
We learned that the city decided to restore the Candelaria neighborhood – the old town with its colonial houses, and this restoration means painting the houses and so deleting all the graffiti. They already painted a couple of houses and every time the city mayor in his war against graffiti published on his facebook page pictures of the walls that were just painted. Already in the comments people will claim the walls again and of course, the next day the houses were tagged and claimed by the local artists. And so the cat and mouse game keeps on.
Here is a sample of this amazing collection of graffiti.
