Also, it is much concerned about its people.
This time, a broad spectrum of society is the topic. There, even the young may have become victims of ugly Recession business, indeed.
Find this expressive piece of graffiti street art behind the venerable church called 'Nuestra Señora de la Peña Francia' which is almost a cathedral to its town folk.
Note that the photo doesn't depict all the little details of the graffiti with Spanish text, as not to offend sensitive viewers. By the looks of it, the artist tried to say as much as possible in a subtle manner.
Indeed, it's a very sad type of public painting compared to what is normally decorating back streets or factory walls.
The street art covers a wall which is eight meters long, at least. Different text notes in this mural look almost like price tags and give everything a market theme. They point out different facts which are alarming with people behavior due to bad economic times of much unemployment and hardship.
It's amazing how the overall mood of the design with its autumn colors blends in so well with its surroundings. Even all the trees by this cobble stone street enhance the whole composition.
Right next to the street art which refers to vulnerable little boys is a the well known Puerto Cruz vegetarian Restaurant that is much favored by the ladies. Almost opposite is Cafe Ebano another Puerto de la Cruz highlight and a vintage shop relic of the past.
Lets not wander off into the future thinking about tourism in this context. It will go on, of course but, it might more and more resemble that of some far away countries.
Want to see some of the other street art of Puerto de la Cruz where much concern for the environment was pointed out by similar graffiti or murals?
