10 Latin American artists you need to watch

From Mexico to Patagonia, check out the work of these Latin American

It’s time to look south and see that the artistic talent hides (or we haven’t been paying enough attention to it) in Latin American countries. Talented artists with interesting proposals. For this reason, ALL CITY CANVAS selected 10 Latin American artists to support local talent.


Ledania (Colombia)

With a background in Visual Arts, Ledania creates complex, colorful murals with a touch of magic. Diana Ordoñez’s paintings are found in Chapinero, a town in Bogota, Colombia. In addition to urban art, Ledania works with photography, graphic design, as well as advertising. In case you were wondering: her pseudonym is a mix between the character from the Greek mythology, Leda —who was seduced by Zeus— and her first name, Diana.

Gris One (Colombia)

“The artwork is yours while you’re creating it. Once you’re done, it belongs to everyone, or no one, or to the streets, or to the people who have it on a canvas.” Colombian artist Gris One’s work is characterized by typographies among abstract geometric planes. Thus, his paintings and murals evoke the strength of nature and the chaos of the metropolis.

Yurika Uno (Colombia)

He has painted the walls of Bogota for over 12 years. As a result, he believes that graffiti “is an excuse to move along the street and escape the dullness of reality.” He is a Graphic Designer from Los Libertadores University; currently he belongs to MDCrew; additionally, he is part of the Vertigo Graffiti collective, with whom he painted the highest wall in Bogota in July 2013.

Franco Fasoli JAZ (Argentina)

In the 90s, he was one of the pioneers who painted the streets of Buenos Aires. Throughout his career, he has painted murals in Canada, Mexico, Italy, France, Austria, Turkey, among many others.

Letop (Colombia)

His murals, paintings and drawings are flooded with nature and its connection to human beings. Andrés Pedroza Salas, also known as Letop, creates by channeling all his energy towards a specific object: mural art. For instance, his murals respond to the feeling of omnipotence that man has experienced since the beginning of industrialization.
