BOGOTÁ, COLOMBIA STREET ART: BANKER TROOPER & CORPORATE VADER by CRiSP

My three months are almost up in Bogota, and I’ve been looking for this CRISP mural for almost two of them. I finally had to get the address from the artist himself. I love it aesthetically because I love Storm Troopers, but more to the heart of it, it’s a really cool mural depicting treacherous world banks, war mongers, the power-hungry, wealthy elite, and their corrosive invasion upon the ‘99%.’ Look at how the characters literally tower over the city skyline. It really gives the sense that breaking into the ‘1%’ is virtually impossible for the everyman and everywoman. And the characters aren’t looking down, taking notice of the population they are meant to represent fairly with respect. Instead, they go about their business way above the ‘disenfranchised’ lives below.

Mural by Crisp. Septima y Calle 134.
