The Colombian capital has been a mecca for street artists since graffiti was decriminalised in 2011. Businesses commission artists, celebrities leave their tag, and you can even join a tour of iconic works.

The Candelaria district in Bogotá is where the most famous works can be seen. Relaxed laws have led to the city becoming a hotbed of global talent, with homegrown and world-renowned artists showing their art.

The ability to expand and experiment with little fear of legal reproach has proved attractive for artists.
