What you'll do

In Mexico we have a very strong tradition of muralism since the 30s. Today the concept of muralism has changed. The artists paint the streets to beautify the public space or resignify places where there is violence, etc.

In our street art tour we will go sightseeing through the city center; will see incredible murals by world-renowned artists as Smithe, Areuz, Curiout, Paola Delfin, Its a Living, Farid Rueda; explore the underground graffiti world by local and international artists.

We will talk about the local and international art projects and festivals, learn to identify different styles and techniques of graffiti and know more about the world of street art.

This tour is perfect to help those unfamiliar with Cancun to settle into the experience

I am a founder of art school Platforma. Seven years ago I came the ​first time to Mexico and felt in love with a culture and people. Later I opened an art school where with a team I was organizing art events, expositions, ​and workshops. As a part of Platforma we make City Art Tours.

City Art Tours is a project where visitors can explore the city through the art experience. We, a team of artists, teachers of art, believe that whenever we find a special art piece, we know that behind of it there is someone who is very passionate about what he/she does.

Michelle and Jonh cohost this experience with me. Michelle is a local artist, teacher of art. John is a street artist, participant of the Meetings of Style and is very passionate​ about art

This is a very interesting walk - both for the eyes and the mind - which I would recommend especially for people new in Cancún. The city can be intimidating when you don’t know where to go, and John gives some great tips about places worth visiting outside the touristic zone. He was a great host, it’s obvious he knows a lot about street art. The only thing I would change would be to make the tour longer, even for a higher price - I know that there are many more beautiful murals in Cancún which I would love to see.

I highly recommend this as a way of seeing local Cancun. It is only around 2 hours and it really captures all the art that is around town. The art in itself actually uncovers a lot of Mexico’s values and culture. Our host John was amazing. He is very open with his experiences and passionate with his job. He used to be an artist and is an amazing photographer, so if you are someone who is interested in art and culture, this is definitely the tour for you. During the tour, he helped us discover some top restaurants too!! This tour is definitely for travellers (not tourists)! Simply amazing!

这次体验让人非常难忘🥳John带着我们去参观了很多坎昆街头的壁画,每一幅都很有特色并有更深刻的意义。John人也特别好,跟我们一路聊天,在我们买东西的时候一直在旁边等候,非常照顾我们的感受,并且还推荐了壁画艺术家的ins给我们。从他的讲解来看,他在街头艺术这方面真的很专业。唯一的遗憾就是没有跟John合影😭但这次体验,我和我的朋友真的很开心😛
