The Street Artists’ Revival of San Felipe, Panama City

The work of María Camila Bernal Toro.  San Felipe (Casco Viejo), Panama City

Many Latin American cities—from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires to Montevideo—boast a bustling street art scene.  Lesser known is the work of Panama City artists. When I met with a fresh outdoor installation in the city’s old quarter of San Felipe (also called Casco Viejo), I was so intrigued that I needed to document it.  The result is The Street Artists’ Revival of San Felipe, Panama City, a piece published today over at FatCap, the beautiful online street art resource. FatCap is bilingual too (French and English).
