International Stars on the Canary Islands

The old city of Puerto de la Cruz in the North of Tenerife surprises with graffiti of internationally renowned artists. Since 2014 the Street Art Festival has taken place in Puerto de la Cruz.

Thus, mural paintings of various styles from many different subject areas came in to being in the historical quarter situated right beside the sea.

In a one-hour walk one can discover the art works of the open-air museum. On -site the visitor will be provided a map with information on the location and the artists. Additionally, this map can be printed out from the internet.

The graffiti artists come from Europe, including Roa from Belgium and Victor Ash from Denmark. Likewise artists from the Spanish mainland like Vido Liqen, Raúl Ruiz and Sebastián Velasco as well as from the Canary Islands have immortalized themselves.

A good example is Ro.Ro from Tenerife. He loves the colour pink and likes to arrange scenes with Playmobil. The absurd is always present in his graffiti art.

The Grenadian artist Raúl Ruiz has created a huge wall painting on a house front on the Atlantic coast. The painting is entitled "Sex, the Child of the Paintings". With his grafittis Ruiz portrays intensive, human feelings, combining gestures and glances with citations.

From the very beginning of the graffiti parcours a windowless back wall of a house displays an art work of the Danish artists Victor Ash which is entitled "Borders to Paradise".

Ash’s wall paintings rank among the graffiti classics worldwide. The wall painting in Puerto de la Cruz shows a vivid mesh preventing a part of mankind from accessing the paradise.
