Street Art Cartagena

Colombia is a very colourful country – in every sense of the word – and this is reflected in the street art that decorates the walls of many inner city buildings. This painting was on an old door in a small square in Cartagena’s old town, a few minutes walk from the walled city. The bright colours and strong defining lines make this image all the more powerful.
