Stencils in Cerro Alegre

Valparaiso is divided into several cerros (mountains) branching up from the ocean. Though there is a ton of graffiti throughout the city, Cerro Alegre, part of the area made a UNESCO world heritage site, definitely has some of the best stencil art that I have seen.

After seeing this stencil, I could not resist humming Kraftwerk's "The Man Machine."

Many of the stencils are inspired by famous photos or movies. This one is from Melies' "A Trip to The Moon."

And this one (definitely my favorite) is from "Leon: The Professional."
