The Isthmus... The writing on the wall

April 21, 2016.

 Corrupto, this mural has been here for a while. It's in Chorillo. It's more of a reference to the US invasion in 1989 then to the ongoing Panama Papers investigation. The neighborhood is littered with many ideas. One apartment block says "NO MERCY". Other walls have political advertising from past elections. Some are full blown advertisements for soda companies. There are even religious effigies and then murals of landscapes that are more like dreamscapes of a tree in a meadow.

What makes all this unique is that all the work on these walls are done by hand. The lettering, the art work. Local artists here are not using projectors, they are free handing it. It's raw and it's unfiltered.
