Up Against the Wall: A Gallery of Nature-Themed Graffiti and Street Art


Medellín, Colombia

Submitted by: Sara Herrera

The cougar (Puma concolor) lives in the mountains that surround the Valley of Aburrá. It is the second largest feline in America, ancient symbol of agility, cunning, strength and power.

Big cats indicate and guarantee the balance of the ecosystem; when it breaks they are the first to go. The way how the contemporary human has taken its relationship with nature and their stranglehold of the territory has become the extinction of species of plants and animal in an everyday affair and, for many, invisible.

Through art I intend to contribute to the survival of these cats and after
them, preserving the natural environment that surrounds our city. With this work, I pay tribute to their presence and celebrate living near them.
