Café del Pintor~

Wow! The everywhere art in Valparaiso Chile exceeds it’s reputation for being arguably the best street art in the world.

There is so much amazing talent to share with you, but let’s start here, this is the front door of the ‘Café of the Artist,’ painted by a male Chilean art student depicting everyday scenes from the town of Valparaiso.

The waiter explained to me that the art in this restaurant was painted by two art students, one a French female whose mind boggling talent you are looking at now. (Please click to enlarge).

Since internet is slow, I can’t look these artists up, but I will when I can.

Maybe you can find out for me?

All I know is pure talent when I see it.

The first two paintings of the café sign and the entry door were done by the Chilean student, and are depictions of Valparaiso, as is the one above.

Here is another mural focusing on culture and heritage.

I didn’t take photos of the food which is a shame because I was too distracted by the art, but the food was ethereal. If you come to Valparaiso, eat here and bring your camera.

Cheers from Valparaiso, the city of living art and excellent food~

  1. If the city ever feels a need to boost tourism, it would do well to get permission to use your colorful and detailed photos, and to adopt the tag line ending this post:

  2. I really think that street art has created a Renaissance of a sort, Cindy, by opening up art to so much raw talent and by providing a opportunity for exposure and growth. It’s what I see at Burning Man and murals everywhere. –Curt

    • And just like weeds, these awesome art forms will not be denied. I finally learned, since I have been a gardener for along time, that rather than planting what I wanted in my garden, I just should celebrate the weeds.
