Over the last 100 days of quarantine, lockdown, and state of emergency, I’ve been living in and photographing the street art of Málaga in Spain. In today’s installment, I finally track down one of my bucket list pieces — and find a whole lot more!
Most of street art treks start when I stumble across a piece online, become slightly obsessed with it, and try to uncover where it might be. Such was the case of “Ramen Cat”, which has the effect of making be both happy and hungry whenever I look at it.
The quest for the art of ramen took me to the Colegio El Divino Pastor, a school in the Vistafranca neighborhood. I not only found Ramen Cat, but murals from 40 more artists painted across the walls. Locals gathered together their friends from around Spain to decorate the walls of the school and the results are impressive.
As always, I’m still tracking down the name of the various artists, so if you see one that I haven’t tagged, let me know in the comments below.
