Street Art Brings Color To Ecuador (GALLERY)

New York, Los Angeles, Buenos Aires and Melbourne are just a few of the cities known for street art. But that doesn't mean the streets aren't being spray painted, wheat pasted and stenciled in other cities – and more importantly, it doesn't lessen the messages these artists are trying to get across. One such place is Ecuador, where graffiti tells the stories of the state of life and what it's like to live in the country. Locals in the country's capital city have a saying that there are "no blank walls in Quito," and for the most part that's true. Even in those instances where there is a blank wall, it probably won't be long before it turns into a canvas. Click through the image gallery below to see a collection of street art images from across Ecuador (including some from Baños de Agua Santa, where Jessica Festa recently documented graffiti). Whether you consider street art a nice artistic touch or an act of vandalism, these images show a unique perspective.
