I’m here in Medellin, Colombia for my first time ever and am so inspired by all of the amazing, beautiful art in this phenomenal city!! As a professional face and body art artist, I especially appreciate the tattoo art and tattoo shops all over Medellin. Aside from that, Medellin is very inspiring to an artist…the color, the energy, the flowers, the music, the fashion…. the list goes on. Theres so much everywhere I go that appeals to my creative side. The use of bold color here is inspiring and right up my artistic alley as I LOVE colors of the electric kind.
Just stepping outdoors in Medellin brings an abundance of gorgeous flowers and burts of green color with foliage everywhere. The city is situated in the mountains so its kind of like city life in the jungle in a way. One moment I’m walking alongside a stream of water in the trees and flowers, the next I’m in a metro city with tall buildings, its really fascinating to me.
The street art is incredible as there are a variety of canvases that art is displayed on, walls, garage doors, flower pots, building, rock, etc. The possibilities and creativity really get my ideas flowing:) The one thing I failed to pack was art materials mostly due to luggage restrictions with the airlines and my attempts to travel as minimally as possible yet feel comfortable during my time in Medellin. The atmosphere here is calm and peaceful but festive, perfect for creativity.
