Long Description:
It is number one in a series of wall murals known as ‘Puerto Street Art’. It depicts a number of rows of human figures standing with their arms and feet outstretched. Each row is standing on the shoulders of the figures below.

Puerto de la Cruz is on the north coast of the island of Tenerife and behind the human figures is a coastal scene with sea and sky and a typical palm tree on a beach.

Next to this particular mural is an information board about the series of murals...
The city as a canvas
Puerto de la Cruz is an Atlantic city open to the sea, so it makes the ideal destination for experiencing the inflow of new and innovative ideas – which is exactly what mural painting is. So it’s no coincidence that it’s the venue for this museum of ephemeral art entitled Puerto Street Art.

One of the most important in the world thanks to the standard of its first rate artists.

In a small space so visitors can take a complete tour in one hour.

Set in the historic heart of the city, so in addition to the plasticity of the works visitors can enjoy the historic urban and cultural value of the area itself.

Murals in a range of different styles created using several techniques and incorporating a whole variety of themes.

A visit to these murals is an impressive visual experience due to their majestic scale and the skill of the artists who have created their works on these huge walls. This is La Ranilla, a historic part of Puerto de la Cruz where - in addition to the art – you can stroll around the streets and enjoy the hustle and bustle of city life and its shops and small restaurants.

Puerto Street Art is a way to rediscover the city as a creative space.
“Victor Ash, also known as Ash, is a Copenhagen-based artist originally from Paris, France. Ash primarily works on canvas, lithography, and sometimes installations. He has exhibited regularly in various museums and galleries around the world since the late 1980s.

Ash’s newest pieces are aesthetically very different from the graffiti he was painting in the 80s, and are a departure from the traditional graffiti styles of New York. Ash often uses the themes of contrast between the urban environments and nature and young people's quest for identity in subcultures.

Ash lives in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, Denmark.” link
