Tabacalera is a lively cultural centre in what used to be a tobacco factory. You’ll find Tabacalera next to the Embajadores metro station.

First I went inside to see what exhibition was on. But when I left the building and started heading up towards the city centre, I discovered the magnificent wall surrounding Tabacalera.

No less than 25 pieces of art  decorate that wall. It’s a project called Muros Tabacalera. It started in 2014 and is now featuring its second edition from 2016.

Artists were invited to paint these with a general Urban Nature theme. They each brought their own different style and interpretation and the outcome is just beautiful.

This irresistible piece is by Okuda:

These are absolutely beautiful murals! I wish I had seen them on my recent trip to Madrid. Next time, I’ll have to add them to the itinerary.

Wow! How amazing art is that! I love street art when it is such a high quality – and being so colorful is just a plus in my world 😉 I loved visiting Bogotá because of their great street art scene, but I had no clue that Madrid also has high-quality art. I will look out for it next time I visit. Thank you for sharing!
