Street Art in Montevideo
Street Art in Montevideo, all the information for you to enjoy the street art of the city.
During the last period, an extremely interesting movement of Street Art was developed in Montevideo. Thanks to this movement, several facades were intervened with different techniques such as murals, stencils, screen printing, graffiti, mixed, among others.
The premise of these works is not simply to beautify the place, but also to give new meaning to spaces, to communicate, to question current social aspects and to contribute to the collective memory. Street art is a global artistic movement, the consequence of a long process at a cultural, social and historical level.
It is a type of constructive, creative art whose objective is the viewer. In Uruguay, it was developed in the 20th century. Between 1950 and 1960, art in buildings was propagated, generating a very enriching artistic legacy.
