A current of social electricity courses through the streets of Montevideo, Uruguay. It runs through the plazas bustling with friends sharing mate tea gourds; it marches along with groups of candombe drummers on their weekly routes. The city’s murals and street art capture and relay the energy of the streets with a visual layer of dialogue.
I found it difficult to credit all the artists, as many pieces are unsigned—suggesting, I think, an emphasis of the artistic message.
