Great Granada Graffiti
Anther wall mural by El Niño, the well known and very talented street artist from Granada. This is one small section of a very long mural on a wall of the Colegio de Santo Domingo. The bench in front of this section is enought for a HBM image. More detail below from a website about street art of Granada. I believe Banksy said that street art without street is just art. Without a doubt, Granada’s old Jewish quarter holds some of the city’s greatest gems in terms of street art. The barrio is home to the city’s most prolific artist: Raúl Ruiz, better known as “El Niño de las Pinturas” (“the kid with the paintings”). Now an internationally known, award-winning artist, Ruiz still remains true to his roots. His work can be found all over Realejo and has become a reference for stunning street art in Granada. His website includes a map showing where to find each of his paintings, but a few of the best are at the Colegio de Santo Domingo. One of the largest and brightest murals in Granada adorns the walls of the school Colegio Santo Domingo. The work is so enormous that Ruiz enlisted the help of some of his artist friends from as far away as Portugal to help complete it. Artists update the images regularly, so it’s possible you’ll never see exactly the same thing twice when you walk by this mural. You might get a glimpse of cartoon animals, pop culture icons, cherubic angels and more!
