Graffiti in the City of Quito, Ecuador

Graffiti in the City of Quito, Ecuadorians love color. Colorful clothing, colorful walls and houses, colorful billboards everywhere (more on that later).

The Ecuadorian countryside is filled with every hue of green, the skies are a deep blue, the clouds are pearly white and dark grey. It’s picturesque and memorably gorgeous.

Unfortunately, color can and is abused throughout Ecuador too, especially in urban areas.

Quito is a visual assault on the eyes, and not an aesthetically pleasing one from up close. Graffiti unfortunately litters the walls everywhere. You can hardly go a city block, let alone a dozen meters, without seeing some form of graffiti. It confounds me why shop owners and home owners can’t and don’t fight this plague.
