About the Tour

Welcome travelers! My name is Diana and I am a Madrilenian in love with painting in all its aspects. That is why I want to present my tour "Paintings on the street" , where we will see the best graffiti on murals , full of history and color.
Learn about the beginnings of graffiti with Jack the Ripper and his walls stained with the blood of his victims, the first Polish graffiti artist!

I have chosen a series of works that have their origin in contemporary art : pop art with inspirations in Warhol or Lichtenstein (the comic) Matisse and fauvism, TVboy (always hidden) and his irony towards current politicians, in a fun way and sarcastic.
Suso 33 and her beginnings in Madrid, Gerada and her portraits of women and many more works, which also delve into current feminism.
We will also see the wonderful mural works of the Tabacalera space , which will speak for themselves.

Where do we start? The route
🔸 1 Ambassador Roundabout. Tabacalera or former tobacco factory (exterior murals) Sara Fratini and Colectivo Licuado
🔸 2 The beautiful Sundial in an old Madrid corrala
🔸 3 Monkey by Okuda and Bordalo “the monkey gentrifies”
🔸 4 contemporary still life. Matisse and disintegrating couple pop art work. One last!
🔸 5 Woman with sword and heart.
🔸 6 Suso 33 and graffiti with windows.
🔸 7 The iconic hug of Juan Genovés of the two Spains in the Plaza de Antón Martín
🔸 8 Work of a woman by the Cuban artist Gerada where we will see that not everything is what it seems.
🔸 9 Mural of infinite languages (the multiculturalism of the Lavapiés neighborhood)
🔸 10 TV boy and his nightly secrets. (Ayuso and Las Meninas) We will finish at Calle Moratín, in the neighborhood of letters.
