Bogota street art

Street art abounds in Bogota. My neighbourhood was no exception. This was something I'd noted on my first visit to Bogota two years ago. The art is described as 80% graffiti, 20% art by one of its noted practitioners, and usually has a social commentary component. It's a major vehicle for young, socially conscious artists in Bogota, and other large cities in Colombia, to express themselves and is a reflection of the fluid state of Colombian society and politics these days.
