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.
The artist of this piece is known as Juliana and a website about this series of murals has the following information...
“She is known in art circles for her extraordinary versatility and her passion for the realm of dreams. Her murals reveal a magic reality where the childhood attachment to the world of illusion still holds sway. Her work is also known for her personal expression of colours, textures and forms; her hyperrealistic dolls and her theatrical stage sets are famous.” link
