In Mexico we have a very strong tradition of muralism since the 30s. Today the concept of muralism has changed. The artists paint the streets to beautify the public space or resignify places where there is violence, etc. In our street art tour we will go sightseeing through the city center; will see incredible murals by world-renowned artists as Areuz, Eddie Cola, Farid Rueda; explore the underground graffiti world by local and international artists. We will talk about the local and international art projects and festivals, learn to identify different styles and techniques of graffiti and know more about the world of street art. This tour is perfect to help those unfamiliar with Playa del Carmen to settle into the experience
I am a founder of art school Platforma. Six years ago I came first time to Mexico and felt in love with a culture and people. Later I opened my art school where with a team I was organizing events, expositions and workshops. As a part of Platforma we make City Art Tours. City Art Tours is a project where visitors can explore the city through the art experience. We, a team of artists, teachers of art, curators, believe that whenever we find a special art piece, we know that behind of it there is someone who is very passionate about what he/she does. This tour is the combination of the best things to do: street art, culture and arquitecture. With us you will explore the undiscovered side of Playa del Carmen most tourists don't venture out to see.
This 2 hour tour takes you from the centre of Playa to the neighborhood's booming urban art spots (think open air urban art museums) and other famous places. We will start on the front of Coco Bongo, walk up trendy 10th Avenue, visit the best graffitis and murals in the city and much more.
Wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen, bring a hat and a camera to discover the city
Let us know if you want a tour in a different day. We make tours every day at 9 am and 5 pm
