Bright colors of Mexican Street Art

One of the pleasures of walking the streets of Puerto Vallarta is the unique and colorful street art. Plaza and allies offer a variety of media subject, although much art is devoted to the indigenous peoples.

Note the profiles of this elderly couple. Look closely and you will seem them as young lovers.

Indigenous Mexican celebrate the skeleton. I loved this portrayal of man and his best friend.
You can also see this in the dapper and fancy skeleton Calaveras, skeleton statues dressed as if for a ball and the sugar skulls we see at Day of the Dead celebrations.
