Gwadloup Streeet Art

 Street Art is very prolific in Guadeloupe and more particularly in Pointe-à-Pitre, the city of the inter-islands which celebrates their artistic works not only in the street but also inside their open-air museum located in the now discontinued renovation building of their former Art Center.


Many of these murals beautify old buildings and prevent their unwelcome facades from being a rather depressing sight for onlookers. There is also a sense of sociological expression about the people who live in Guadeloupe but also about other human beings around the world and its history that inspires street artists.

What is significant is the lesser presence of graffiti compared to many major North American metropolitan areas. Guadeloupean street expression is culturally deeper, more articulate and more appealing than just repeated graphic garish lines.

Here are some examples of how artistic expression can be popular and highly sophisticated.

A trace of light that survive a little further than the actual moment of flash.
