ECUADOR: Streetart Cuenca – Fantastic Urban Artworks of the Azuay Capital

Thanks a lot for the contribution of the awesome material by photographer and streetart hunter Gail Lochner. On her channel you can find regularly interesting and creative content from Ecuador. Here we have a collection of the urban works from the city of Cuenca in the Azuay province.


Located at Larga 93

Gail about the photo gallery: This photo was the 3’rd I’d taken in Cuenca. It was an eye opener for me. Artists paint everywhere and on anything. This older painting, which is something I could look at forever, was painted on a wall between 2 different generational buildings. I feel the surroundings of some of these pieces are as much a part of the art, as the actual painting. It all tells a story. In this case, adding some history gave us an added bonus of a woman from another time.

This great piece of the pink and blue woman, was painted on the end of a building, on a hill emptying onto a street. A picture of just her, leaves one looking at this post wondering the point of the work. Add one of the two following pictures and you have two perspectives. There’s also that arrow in her heart. Point being, in Cuenca at least, many times you need more than the painting, for the full feel and appreciation.

Of course we have our large murals. What’s interesting is the larger murals are frequently painted over, like these two have been. I hit certain areas of town regularly, hoping I don’t miss one. I personally feel this pretty cool and I will post the changes as they appear.

Cuenca is also full of the unexpected. This house is one of them and this precious gem is in the middle of a vibrant neighborhood. It has everything I love. Art, history and nature.

The stone walls around the city are as endless as the unique art they offer. The following photos are just a small sampling of what we see everywhere in our neighborhoods and in our gorgeous city.  –  Gail Lochner

LEON about the artwork on the left: “Heartbreaking stories arise daily posted on social networks, innocent lives of children are extinguished by the violent actions that are going through our country. . These acts have homogenized the gray dreams and longings of many of them. But in the face of all these adversities there is always a light that manages to intensify the color and the essence of being children. Thanks to my brother Javier Rodriguez for the invitation and all the management within the framework of the Jake Mate project.” – LEON
