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
