Street Art Sunday: Puebla Edition

Having just arrived in Puebla on Friday, I can’t claim to know much about the city (other than the fact that El Carmen on Calle 16 de Septiembre makes incredible cemitas), and there’s certainly beautiful, funny and provocative art to be seen driving into the main bus station, or walking around the Centro Histórico. But if there’s a more extensive – and stunning – display than the one found in Ciudad Mural in the Barrio de Xanenetla…well, I’d be surprised.

An explosion of color snd creativity

The walls of the modest homes, stores and workshops that line the neighborhood’s cobbled street are festooned with extraordinary murals, created through a collaborative process between residents and the artists of Colectivo Tomate. The works you see pictured above and below represent the memories and personal histories of the people of Xanenetla.
