    Los muros hablan 2013 (Walls speak) is a street art festival that took place during the month of October 2013. The concept is that renowned street artists from Puerto Rico, the United States and Latin America were invited to paint large scale murals in specifically designated buildings in Río Piedras and Santurce, Puerto Rico. This is the second time the festival has been held, and the idea is to beautify some of the more run down areas in San Juan. Here are some of the murals, some of which had not yet been completed when I photographed them:

    I had missed some of these on flickr. A stunning set. Shooting art and making it more than just a representation is a challenge. You did more than succeed. If forced to pick a favorite, I'd go with #2. But I'd be over the moon with any of them.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    I only saw some of these on Flickr too Antonio, and I agree completely with Luke's comment - tough to add to the art you're recording. But you do it well. I think the first two, the shot with the tires and hula hoops in the foreground, and the night shot with the guy walking by are my favorites for getting at more than the art you're recording.
