Join us on the free tour STREET ART – VALENCIA and discover El Carmen, a neighborhood so varied that it is sometimes difficult to define.
Its history has its roots in the very conquest of Valencia in the 13th century. El Carmen, full of inspiring nooks and crannies and labyrinthine alleys inherited from Islamic urbanism, is a monumental and museum district, but also a nightlife, urban art and avant-garde district.
We will meet the most representative muralists and graffiti artists (local, national and international) who have left their artistic mark in the neighborhood of El Carmen and give us their ephemeral works.
How does graffiti come about? What is a tag? We will learn to identify the different techniques: spray, paint, stickers, stencil, paste-up…
Urban art will be our inseparable companion, present in each of the streets we pass through, surprising us with its colorfulness, challenging us to reflect on its message, interacting with us and creating a totally unexpected creative dialogue.
After a two and a half hour tour of this open-air museum, we will end the graffiti free tour by saying goodbye near the Plaza del Carmen.
If you go to another city just look for the orange umbrella.
