Valparaíso Graffiti Day 36

Surprisingly realistic abstract faces and people off Urriola Street

This mural image of people is spray painted beside the front door of a house on a side street offshoot of Calle Urriola


This girl catches your eye as you walk up the stairs on a narrow sidestreet off Calle Urriola.

I discovered this mural by chance, while walking up to the front door of a friend’s place, along a steep staircase leading from Calle Urriola to the street above. It’s not a major walkway or route, so finding murals like this lining the way was a lovely surprise. This place is absolutely full of gorgeous art at every turn, literally.

I like how the abstract black and white spraypainted images of people convey as realistic an impression of a person as a real black and white photo.
