Street Art and Murals in Playa Del Carmen
Here is an interesting look at street art in Playa Del Carmen. At first look, Playa Del Carmen might not seem to have a large art scene. Digging deeper you will find that there is in fact a large collection of artist who live and visit Playa. Being an international destination for travelers brings some very talented artist that prefer to work on walls rather then canvas. We have been combing the city to bring you this selection. Lately there is an explosion of graffiti art in Colosio neighborhood just north of the center of Playa. We are very proud of this gallery because it is the most extensive collection of graffiti and murals in Playa Del Carmen. We will be adding to it when we find more, so check back often

Hi my name is Teresa. I saw one artist with birth paintings and usually they were people in them. His name was Fumera? Does he sell in a store in Playa Del Carmen?
Hello Teresa. Fumora is one local artist and there is one store that sells some of his work. Casa Kuxtal on 16th Street between 5th Avenue and 1st Avenue sells some of his paintings.
Is there a walking or biking route availeble?
There are no tours to see the murals but you can self walk or rent bikes and see them. An easy party is north on 5th between Ctm Avenue and 90th Street.
Hi, how can I get in touch with some of the artists . I have a building in Playa and I would love to get a mural done on the side of it.
Senoke is the most famous one. You can find him on his Instagram page. Ocasionlly you can find post on Facebook of mural artist that are in the area and looking for work. We don’t have any of their contacts. You can also put an ad on Facebook groups saying you are looking and you should get some responses.
