Art / Ecuador

Seen in Quito

Quito has two parts: old and new. The old part is an artwork in its own right – old plazas and ancient churches are squeezed in between the narrow, steep, cobbled streets. In the new town, wide avenues lined with trees house coffee shops and restaurants. But always, the city is a canvas. The street art in Quito was notable for the larger pieces – massive murals on the sides of highway embankments, visible from very far away, or covering entire double-storey walls.
