One of the best things we did in Valencia was to take the street art tour offered by Free Tour Valencia. It was phenomenal. Our guide clearly loved the subject and wanted to provide us with as much information as possible.
She explained why the El Carmen neighborhood is so full of street art. Take the tour and you can find out too.
She also introduced us to the art of several of the local artists. We, of course, saw several of the ninja’s by David Di Limon. The ninja’s are all over the city. They’ve even been licensed to sell beer.
We both loved the sci-fi art by Deih.
We learned that several of the prominent artists on the walls of Valencia are women. I loved the art by Julieta, which always includes an Asian woman with her eyes closed. Nobody is quite sure what to make of that. Is she dead? Is she sleeping? Something else?
And, we both liked the work of Barbi, who always includes pink bunnies in her work. She even includes some X-rated bunnies, just to show that women can paint anything.
If street art interests you at all, we highly recommend the tour. You can walk around and see much of it on your own, but the tour provides another level of insight into the art.
