Popular De Lujo: A portrait of a city (Bogota, Colombia) through its folk art and street graphics. "Some sections of this site are not translated in order to keep the original and true sense of local idiomatic expressions which have no precise equivalent in other languages. However, you will realize that the graphic language is so rich in shapes and colours, that it speaks for itself."

I am very enamoured of El burrito burlón. I can't stop looking at it - I think I had almost the same poster when I was a kid. My mother bought it for a game of pin the tail on the donkey for my birthday party, but I wouldn't let anyone put holes in it because the donkey was too cute.

Here's a nice clip which features some of the art featured on the site. This is lovely - thanks, vacapinta.

It's a long shot, I suppose, but does anybody know what that song is in the video iconomy linked?

Wonderful link, vacapinta, thanks. I love the conjuros section...also, some of these wonderful how-to and educational pamphlets.
