Málaga Street Art: MAUS

Málaga Street Art: MAUS

From 2013 Málaga’s been offering its walls to street artists from all over the world for its prestigious art project MAUS, short for Málaga Arte Urbano Soho. I happened to visit this city in 2015 and couldn’t believe the abundance of street art, not only as part of MAUS, but far more art that wasn’t commissioned.

Street Art Superstars

MAUS successfully managed to get the crème de la crème of the world street art scene to their city. I couldn’t believe it when I found the larger than life murals by street art superstars such as ROA, DALeast, Faith47, D*Face and Shepard Fairey in such a quiet and rather small city. In the feature image at the top of this post you see an amazing mural by one of my favourite artists, DALeast. And because I love his work so much, here’s another photo of that mural from a slightly different angle.

DALeast – Alameda Principal 25

Faith47 – Alameda Principal 47

Not far from DALeast’s stunning mural of a murder of crows, Faith47 painted this enormous piece. I adore everything this amazing artist from South Africa creates and I wish I could see more of her epic work in real life rather than in her Instagram feed.

ROA – Calle Casas de Campos

Speaking of epic larger than life murals, what about this jaw-dropping piece by Belgian street artist ROA?!?

D*Face & Shepard Fairey – Calle Comandante Benítez 14

These two street art superweights appear side by side at the edge of the city centre, a pretty impressive sight!

Andi Rivas – Parking Calle Alemania

I wonder what the nuns in the photo made of this colourful piece.

MAUS also offers so-called ‘free walls’ up to artists. Here’s a selection of those works.

For more information on the project, artists and an up-to-date map of all the works, please refer to the MAUS website.
