Pretty as a picture.

"Nestled at the foot of a small hill in the locality of Rafael Uribe Uribe, on the banks of the Chiguaza River is the tiny neighbourhood of 870 people of Los Puentes. Because of this peculiar geography, the neighbourhood is relatively isolated from nearby working class barrios and, since it creeps up the hill, is visible from large swathes of the southern part of Bogotá.

 

These features, alongside the community’s eagerness to participate, made it a perfect candidate for the city’s first macro-mural project. Close to 400 houses were painted over the course of two months to create a striking piece of art that is best appreciated from a distance."
