Our friend over at Passport Delicious put this walking tour of Bogotá’s Street Art onto our ‘to-do’ list. We now want to put it on yours. Graffiti isn’t technically illegal in Colombia, and has made the streets colorful, expressive, and an international draw card for ‘grafiteros’. When visiting we highly recommend you join the Bogotá Graffiti Tour, the tour is provided in English, and takes you not only on a journey to show some brilliant street art, but through the colorful neighborhood of La Canderlaria.

Along the way you will learn some fascinating details about the world of ‘street art’, and be wowed by the community & the artists backgrounds. Make sure you have some comfortable walking shoes – like these from ‘Bucket-Feet’ a company based here in Chicago, where every shoe is designed by a different artist- including DJLu from Bogota.

    It’s nice to see another area in the world where graffiti “isn’t technically illegal.” Here in Taiwan the same is true, yet, unfortunately, we haven’t had the privilege of witnessing street art like these you came across in Bogota. Maybe we haven’t been lucky enough to find the hidden gems, or maybe there are other reasons. It’s probably due to the recent public advertisements displaying how the art creates a “negative image” for the city. It’s too bad everyone can’t appreciate the beauty of street art. Great pictures! Thanks for posting.
