One Street Artist Versus The Most Dangerous Country in The World

August 1, 2012

Tegucigalpa is the capital city of Honduras, statistically one of the most dangerous countries in the world. With more violence and murders per capita than almost anywhere, you’d think it’d be the last place anyone would risk creating street art. But even under the pain of death, corrupt police, and heavily armed gangs, one hooded and masked art vigilante, known simply as the Urban Maeztro, is risking his life to bring his particular brand of political street art to the people of Honduras.

It might not be the most original street art you’ve ever seen, but damn, this kid has got some Cahunas. Forget about stories of UK and US street artists and the ‘risks they take’, this kid is as hardcore as they come, he even stops to pat dogs after risking his neck for his art. Long live the Honduran street art revolution!
