There is a lot of street art in Quito. It covers a lot of concrete walls that are part of the city’s infrastructure (supports for elevated roads, walls around buildings, etc). Here is some that I saw in February 2018.
below: Two people, one inside sitting pretty in pink and one outside.
below: A bird in flight. One wing looks like flames while the other wing resembles water. Signed by yo-ho-ho.
below: Many, many faces in pink.
below: Part dragon and part fish?
below: A painting by BEGO
The next few paintings were on a wall surrounding an house that was falling down.
below: This is the last of the photos from the ruined building – note the broken bottles across the top of the wall. That’s very common in Quito… although electric fences seem to be replacing broken glass as a means of keeping trespassers out.
below: Crab (lobster?) hands
below: Laughing and pointing
below: Someone stole an orange cone.
below: Covering his mouth and I don’t think that it’s because he’s coughing.
below: Pasteup over his face, a mouse and a mousetrap
below: Another gorgeous bird. Signed by Pagach? (Pagache?)
below: Painted on a rusty metal gate. Reaching for the skull. I am not sure of the words but if it’s “ponte y las alas” that translates to ‘stand and the wings’ but there are more letters. Any ideas anyone? Painted by Aster in 2017.
below: Graffiti behind the fence
below: Supay Corpus in a residential area.
below: Someone likes to paint underwear, men’s brief to be more specific.
below: A very realistic portrait of an old man with one green eye open.
And last, there were some word stencils….
below: #2mayo and “ecuador ama la vida” which is ‘ecuador, love life’ is now someone’s love note to Mina.
below: “Sigue to corazon & disfruta el viaje” which means “follow your heart and enjoy the trip”.
below: Natura Insurrecta? and “Mineria responsable cuento miserable”. The direct translation for the latter is “mining responsible, tale miserable”.
