Here are a set of murals I encountered in the little town of Portomarín, Galicia.
While I was walking down the road, on a small house in the middle of the town, I saw an avalanche of drawings.
They looked interesting, so I got closer to have a better view.
This is the most colourful and interesting piece, in my opinion. It looks like the concept is a mix between themes varying from religious, farming life and the Saint James Way's pilgrims.
Each of the walls had been painted with a different piece, but all were part of the same work. The 3 walls matched and complemented each other very well.
The remaining walls had more generic paintings, as you can see in these shots.
This house was part of a school but it appeared to be its main office and administrative side only. All the classrooms were located in a bigger building, on a nearby street.
The school's name was "Virgen de la Luz" (Virgin of the Light), which suggests its a school run by the local church.
Here's a close up shot of the main entrance. As you can see, in these walls the artist had a very limited space to work with.
Here you can have a cleaner view of the other large wall. Due to its layout, the artist had to be quite creative and draw around the windows. 😆
I hope you enjoyed these shots. See you next time!
