Street Art La Paz

Street Art La Paz is an organization that was established in 2017 with a mission to promote the vibrant world of street art in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. We began our journey by offering immersive street art tours and creating and distributing maps to help art enthusiasts discover the diverse range of art pieces scattered throughout the downtown area.

As of 2022, our agency has expanded its horizons by venturing into the creation of murals for a variety of projects. This includes contributing to public art initiatives like Museo Libre, as well as working on private mural commissions and collaborating with non-profit organizations.

Our ultimate goal is to serve as a catalyst for the proliferation of murals that resonate with the local community. Through these expressive artworks, we aim to foster a deeper connection with the community’s identity, amplify their stories of resilience, honor their heroes, and, most importantly, provide a canvas for envisioning a brighter future.

Discover the stories behind the murals

Our street art walk in the center of La Paz lasts for roughly an hour and a half.

We invite you to discover the stories behing 15 murals painted by a variety of artists from the four corners of Mexico. Most of them have been painted in the context of the project Cuidad Mural (2017), initiated by Colectivo Tomate.

Each mural carries its own thematic story of La Paz about the fishermen of the bay, the rancheros of the desert, the cave paintings of the first Indians but also the challenges of ocean conservation and the success stories of the reconversion of the local fishermen to sustainable practices.

True reflections of the local culture, these murals provide the viewer deep access to the culture of The Baja.

Tours may be provided in French, English or Spanish

Amélie Padioleau

A French anthropologist, journalist and sailor, Amélie first arrived in La Paz 10 years ago. She collects mythological stories, sea legends, but also true facts about fishermen and local heroes with the courage to rethink their life around sustainability and conservation.

Amélie discovered Colectivo Tomato in 2017 when they invited 25 talented artists to paint the stories of the community on the walls of their city. For her this project was a revelation. The filter of art brought sincerity and emotion to these stories. Now she can’t help it: she has to share them.
