I took a day trip to Granada last week to hunt out street art.
Granada is not as chock-a-block with street art as some other cities, however there is still a fair bit to find. The Realejo barrio (the old Jewish quarter) is the main place to look.
Granada’s most famous graffiti artist is Raúl Ruiz, who goes under the name of El Niño de las Pintura (painting boy). You can see examples of his work everywhere, such as his take of the thinker, on the side of Molinos hotel.
He is also the person behind the drawing of Clash frontman Joe Strummer, which I tracked down last time I was in Granada (you can check that out here).
In the same area is Santa Domingo school, which is covered with all kinds of pictures. This time it’s not the work of El Niño, but rather a giant free-for-all.
