La Noche en Blanco

Back home in Miraflores.

La Noche en Blanco is a celebration in which many of Miraflores' streets are closed off to traffic, and art is displayed in the streets, on the buildings, and in galleries. For a town so ridden with traffic, it's extremely refreshing to stroll through the streets on a night like this.

Limeña Girl, by Sheila Alvarado, is a series of realistic self-portraits published on the sex page of Peru21.

Looks like Marco Sueño's otorongo, but I think it's someone else's!

Rainforest patterns.

Conrad is another well-known graffiti artist, known not only for his work on the street but for his bad-ass figurines.

Following artists unknown.... (sorry!)...

Iturburu is one of my favorite artists out of Lima... he works with shapes, spaces, intersections of color and form.

Seimiek, another one of Lima's fantastic street artists. Some really funky stuff, this guy has got pure talent.
