Meet the Artists

Ordes is a small village near A Coruña that has been transformed by street art. More than a decade ago, several young artists decided to turn old grey cement buildings into colorful murals. Since then, artists from different parts of the world have participated in a festival called DesOrdes which is celebrated in August.
