Wall painting, what Medellin is known for.


The following three "paintings" were on a street very close to our hotel.

This painting really impressed me, notice how skilfully the details of the face and the beard of the painter himself was prepared, it looks more like a photo.

This one was on a wall facing a private garden.

I have never seen this before. The artist's rendering of the old Medellin was painted on the ceiling, underneath the elevated foundation for the metro railroad in downtown Medellin. The artist shows the mountains around Medellin, the first bridge, the first train with reflection in Rio Porce (which is called Rio Medellin while within the boundary of Medellin). I can't recall what the building to the right was.
