Comex, the largest paint manufacturer in Central America, has (in conjunction with the tomato farmers) sponsored dozens of murals throughout the city. These paintings rejuvenate crumbling facades, bringing color and vitality to back alleyways and main streets alike. Ranging from several feet to several stories in height, this street art is often deceptively intricate, incorporating numerous miniature scenes-within-the-whole. Images featuring whales, turtles, fishermen, cactus and ranchers reveal La Paz’s deep and reverent connection to the sea, the land and its people. Oh, and of course… skulls…gotta have skulls (representing Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead)!
