Your ultimate source for Costa Rican street art goodness

I’ll admit it: this week has been running me ragged, and today my Daily Boost inspiration didn’t strike until precisely 4 pm. I asked the man ringing me up at a San Pedro café what the organization on his T-shirt was all about, and his answer filled me with instant delight. Costa Rica en al Pared (Costa Rica on the Wall) is the street art compendium I’ve been looking for all my life. Well, for 15 years, at least.

The urban art platform supports and celebrates artists, holds art safaris (what the hell have I been doing with my time?), promotes mural contests and more. Most importantly for me, it posts photos of amazing street art and the people who make it. Lots and lots of photos. I’ll be turning to this account for a splash of color on rushed days like today from here on out.

I’m a writer in San José, Costa Rica, on a year-long quest to share daily posts on inspiring people, places and ideas from my adopted home as a kind of tonic during a rough time in the world. Sign up (top right of this page) to receive a little dose of inspiration every weekday in your mailbox; tell a friend; check out past posts; and please connect with me on Instagram or Facebook! Each month in 2020 has a monthly theme, and February’s is marriage equality, so scroll back through the month to see several posts highlighting people and organizations working on behalf of this issue in Costa Rica.
