Street Art of Oaxaca

One of the interesting things about Oaxaca was the abundance of murals and street art. Some of it was political, and some of it wasn’t – but it was all very striking and we ended up taking a lot of photos.. yes… not a surprise really 🙂

So here is a selection of the street art of Oaxaca…
