I absolutely love seeing expressions by street artists in geographic areas that sometimes are left out from those offers of¬†spontaneity and appropriation of spaces that shape our identities and memories. Recently Ark¬†visited San Bernardo del Viento, a fishing community of families who’ve been victims of displacement due to political violence prevalent in some parts of Colombia.

This mural beautifully narrates a story of a culture that needs to bind themselves to their traditions and seek strenght in the unity that has saved their lives in previous experiences.
