These INTI street art wall murals are created by the Chilean graffiti artist. These expressive art pieces aim to fuse modern concepts along with traditional iconography. Showcasing cultural imagery like Latin-American carnival symbols, these street graphics give personality to run-down urban environments.

From dressed-up clowns wearing multi-colored patterns to religious idols and political slogans, these spirited INTI street art murals embody the Chilean culture. From joy to pain, the artist creates a social commentary with his work, exploring the country's ongoing struggle with poverty and lack of various resources like food, clothing and shelter.

These bold graffiti paintings leave a lasting impression on residents and tourists as they exude positivity, hope and a nationalist sense of pride.
