Streetart Map Angol – Urban Art Archive and Graffiti Collection

Angol was founded in 1553 by Pedro de Valdivia, the conquistador of Chile, as the last frontier before the Mapuche territory. Today all this land is called Araucania Region. This is reflected in the political graffiti that you can find here. Angol, a small city of around 53,000 people, is located 570 km south of Santiago (capital of Chile). These characteristics of a small place and isolate of big cities, configure special features for the graffiti. For example, graffiti can last easily more than a decade because there isn’t competition to find a wall like in big cities where new graffiti usually is on top of an old one.

Bore Namazu Tattoos – Arica

In Arica on the northern Pacific Coast we made a little stop to do some surfing. The beaches and the waves are quite nice for several month. Next to the harbor we passed the Tattoo-Studio of the artist Bore, who showed us the shop and gave one of our colleagues an ear-piercing-plug for free. So we thought why not write an article about the tattoo studio. In the link you will find an interview with Bore and a video of a tattoo session and his shop.

Valparaiso – Welcome to Hostal Voyage

During our journey in Chile we made a stop in Valparaiso and could stay in the most interessting Hostel of the city: Hostel Voyage. It´s much nicer to stay at a friends´ place than in a hotel room. A lot of people prefer therefore couchsurfing, it´s a cheaper and as well much more personal way to travel. And at the doors of Hostel Voyage we were welcomed exactly that way. After riding the whole night in a horrible bus through half of the country and searching for over two hours for a place to stay – out of 20 hostels really nobody opened – we finally have been greeted at this nice lodge.

La Serena – Streetart and Inauguration of a Masterpiece

Another very cool surfers spot in Chile is the second biggest city in the country: La Serena. Here the Elqui-Valley is just around the corner, it´s one of the main producing areas for the Chilenian national drink Pisco. It´s a very nice drink, you can get in Germany as well, but for sure not comparable to the one you can get there at the vineyards. The city is really nice, with the historic center built in the colonial style and if you arrive from the north it is quite pleasant to arrive at this alive and green place after a lot of ghosttowns in the Atacama desert, who remind on the salpeter mining period.
