Casco Viejo Street Art


There was life on the streets of Panama City.  And lots of wonderful, gritty art. 






I actually know a guy who looks like this!




This mural was photographed beside an ongoing photo shoot. I think they were filming a commercial. We were trapped inside the action! A real life on the streets moment.









I wonder who sits in those lonely chairs? I love that long tail.



Great cone beautification!







Do you see the man on the lower right?



Dragon's fire! I loved this one.



Technically, this one was inside a restaurant. I loved it. 


You can really feel the humanity of the people through their street art. Casco Viejo, the old town, was a crumbling wonderland. Half of it was joyously renewed. A painted and polished come back story. But I liked the unpolished side. The other half of Casco Viejo was still slowly dissolving into the past. It was a photographic playground. 

I'd love to be wandering still...


Have you ever heard of human wrangling? 


I tried it. Over at The Chorus of the Crows

It seems the best activity in this historical old town is to use a camera. The key words in this place are: colorful, cute, alive.

Interesting art there -- it's as if the street -- or the whole town -- is an art museum! Not sure I'd be comfortable sitting right in front of that street rat -- he looks too real to turn your back on -- enjoyed all of the murals and the bear in the restaurant. I wonder if you'll be a star in that commercial -- soon people may recognize you on the street!

When I visited Casco Viejo I didn't notice the street art. I think it is a relatively recent thing. Well, looks like I need to go back.

Such fabulous street art! My youngest son loves to look out for it when we visit the bigger cities.

Fantastic street art! I love it when places embrace it, instead of banning and painting over it.
