The Outline by Aurelio de la Guerra

Aurelio de la Guerra, seasoned graffiti and video artist from the neighborhood of Barranco, paints the foot of a traditional scissor dancer on the side of the architecture building of the University Federico Vidareal. A self-proclaimed anarchist, he often works illegally and up until this point had never accepted payment for his mural work. He was the first artist I met with, and as head of collective Poco Floro in the Center of Lima, he gave me the down-low on Lima's graffiti community.

I'll be adding a new label, Lima de Reojo, for all street art related posts in, around, or about Lima's urban art scene. Reojo means what you see out of the corner of your eye and beckons you to look a second time.
