CHILE: Streetart Angol – Ruta 180 – Acceso a Shell – Old Gas Station Urbex

Another Urbex adventure from Chile. You can find the access to this abandoned Shell gas station, where the city of Angol ends as seen in today’s map at Ruta 180. It’s kind of a nice trip to #angolstreetart – most likely, in the future this will be part of the city of Angol. For now, it is just an abandoned gas station, but with lots of interesting graffiti with strong Angoline influence. Among the participants, you can distinguish the artists ZEN, DYRE and PABLO ANTAY from the TONS CREW.

CHILE: Streetart Angol – Abandoned Supermarket Urbex at José Luis Osorio

At the location of José Luis Osorio Street 10 in Angol is an abandoned and half-ruined building that used to be a supermarket many years ago. The former shopping place is totally run down and partly overgrown by nature, but it is as well a little streetart paradise and peppered with small to large interesting works of art. Photographer Salvador Seda has visited this area several times and created various galleries and interesting story writings with information to the artists of the tags, bombings and graffiti at this spot. Once he even met sprayer SNIP in action. Also included are works by DYRE, ROYER, AMAGO, PABLO ANTAY, RIE, ZEN, the ESKRITORES CREW and the TONS CREW.

CHILE: Angol Urbex Adventure – The mysterious old Ilabaca Hospital

The photographer Salvador Seda has been working on the Angol Streetart Map in Chile since quite a while and fills it with interesting stories and great photographs. His focus is often on the history of the urban art and the spot. In that case obviously it makes sense to explore abandoned places and Salvador is a big fan of Urbex. During an adventurous tour of discovery, the streetart hunter visited the Ilabaca Hospital, which had been out of order for decades. The dilapidated buildings and half-collapsed rooms have something eerie but at the same time also something attractive, which arouses curiosity. In such places you can usually find interesting graffiti art as well.
