GraffitiMundo is Spanish for Graffiti World. And clearly, street art has become a worldwide phenomenon. When I took that fateful tour with GrafittiMundo in Argentina last February, I had no idea it would inspire an entirely new focus for Studio Hill Design. Now, after months of building MurosABQ.com, our website directory of Albuquerque’s high quality murals, the adventure continues. This year, my destination was San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. The local group Muros en Blanco has worked with international artists and Mexican government entities to create an entirely new mural scene in SMdA all since 2012, when murals first became legal.
The following images are a few samples of the hundreds of quality murals that can be seen in this beautiful city. (If you’re in the neighborhood, check out the walking tour offered by Muros en Blanco.) Clearly, Albuquerque has room for more great street art!
