Urban art in Yucatan led us to discover places with charm and a unique vibe that embellish the walls of various streets and buildings in the state. It is a delight to learn about great techniques of artistic expression that are presented freely, mainly in subdivisions and neighborhoods from Mérida to Progreso, Motul and Chicxulub in places you wouldn’t have imagined.

The term “Street art” (Urban Art) emerged in the mid-90’s to identify anonymous art that appeared in all parts of the world. This urban phenomena gave a platform for artists to express themselves, many times daringly depicting political injustices and social issues.
Urban art ranges from murals, graffiti, stencils to sculptures or objects on public roads and posters that tell intricate stories.
