Street artists to improve urban image in Playa del Carmen

Share This

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Q. Roo – “Urban art on our streets reflect a cohesive society with a common purpose: to express the feelings of our community, demonstrating that we are active citizens… and we want our streets to come alive”, said Verónica Dupré, who is in charge of the artistic project called “Calles Corazón, proyecto calle 4”.

“This is the first time that Calles Corazón is carried out in Playa del Carmen, the purpose of this project is to revitalize the streets with the support of the private sector, the government and citizenry, in order to have safer and cleaner spaces. We’re developing a project that will be a reference in different parts of the country” said one of the project’s promoters, Fernanda Casarín.

Casarín explained: “Urban art paintings allow a new way to view our environment, urban spaces and social life. Through art we can tell a story and generate hundreds of emotions for those who have just arrived at the destination, either just passing by, or permanently residing here”.


From July 20 to 30, 2017, this project will take place on the streets 4 and 2, which are considered two of the main streets in Playa del Carmen, and that will be intervened by dozens of talented muralists.

“Regardless of whether some streets seem to be forgotten, we are going to restore them and generate a sense of belonging for the locals”, said Casarín.

Mexican artists such as Gonzalo Areuz, La News, Paola Delfín, Oliver Tormenta from Mexico City, Dherzu from Cancun, Bolla Hiriat from Michoacán, Saúl Torbe from Querétaro, among others, will be responsible for giving new life, color and beat to Playa del Carmen’s streets in the coming days.
