Art in the City: Street Murals at BGC

Taking a break from my thesis, other academic requirements and organization works (oh who am I kidding, this isn’t really a break since this happened before we actually go to an org-related event he he), G and I decided to take a walk and admire the various street arts around BGC since both of us are really fond of arts.

Street arts and murals have been a huge part of the urban culture. These are unsanctioned artworks executed outside usual art venues such as museums, and art galleries. In the Philippines, one of the most famous street murals are that of the Bonifacio Global City.

Here’s a list of some of the murals we’ve seen and managed to take photos of!

I seriously had a lot of fun and I swear, if I had the luxury of time, I would love to do more photowalks or visit more art places and museums in the future. Such a nice form of relaxation.

TRAVEL TIP: I learned about this few days after this photowalk but if you wish to have a guided tour, you may opt to go to the Alveo Showroom, since they offer walking tours which depart daily 5:30 PM.
