Dela Rosa Mural: The Visual Walkway!

08.09.2015 – Graffiti or street art has now become a fixture of an urban presence. Though there is some vandalism that clearly just a random mess out there. But there is different kind of vandalism that you might come across that’s getting a good view.

Earlier it was raining and it was pouring that some have to cower shelter to avoid getting drenched. The best place to find shelter if you also in need of visual calmness is the Dela Rosa walkway which stretches all the way to the Ayala Malls…

If you’ve been plying the long walkway expect in the next few years that they’ll extend this near to the Gil Puyat intersecting the corner of Ayala Avenue, which is currently in construction.

The walkway has been a good alternate route from walking along the busy Ayala Avenue. It has been developed since the early 2000s which can be located along Dela Rosa Avenue where you will find the elevated walkway.

It’s hardly seen by those who are not resident or regularly employed in the city of Makati, but for those who has been used to walking in the streets of the Central Business District this little haven that also have food shops along the way is also a place of visual perspective.

Enter the Dela Rosa Murual a sprawling grafitti art that has been a project between Ayala Land and a group of visual artists who also contributed their work on two of the main underpasses located along Ayala Avenue.

The featured artists have Nemo Aguila, Kookoo Ramos, Blic, Rai Cruz, Garapata and many more. These works has been created in the last quarter of 2014, and if you have deep affinity of everything that is art then you’ll enjoy this visual perspective. So Sunday was not bad after all getting wet trying to get to Glorietta, and if you’re employed in one of the companies in this city this would be a cool alternative to travelling to work.

Just one warning though neck breaking is not a healthy thing, but looking at these murals is quite habit forming with all the vibrant colors used by these artists its hard to avoid to look at these works of art.
