Venezuela: Street Art on the Internet

Street artists and musicians broaden their public when they come into contact with citizen media. In Venezuela, where music and theater are parts of daily life, traffic, and buses, a number of citizen journalists share their experiences when they meet with artists that bring color to urban life.

Similarly, these very artists prepare short videos and documentaries in which they show performances of various street musicians.

In this video, recorded by the artists themselves for the festival of street singers, you can see musicians that come together in various cities throughout the country:

Meanwhile, Cinetica13 shares a very popular street musician's performance in the city of Mérida.

Theater also has its place in the Venezuelan street art world.  On his YouTube account, Perucho Morales shares performances by the “Comediantes” group, also in Mérida.
