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 3ttman and a website about this series of murals has the following information...
“This multifaceted artist sets out to recapture in his work the forms of popular expression that are seen in daily life and on his numerous travels to distant lands. He views the current situation of his day from a symbolic perspective, and investigates different materials as a support for his art. This mural shows a family of Canary Islands farmworkers, as a token of gratitude to the island that welcomed him.” link
