In November, I featured some of the fabulous urban street art in the Soho district of Málaga – which proved to be a very popular post!
Since then, more murals have been commissioned by the city, including these two on the facade of the Colegio García Lorca. The one the left is by British street artist D*Face whilst the other, (Peace and Liberty) comes from American contemporary street artist, Shepard Fairey (aka OBEY).
There’s great street art in many cities around the world, so please share some with us in this month’s CBBH Photo Challenge: STREET ART.
Don’t forget that the CBBH Photo Challenge is a little different from some other challenges, in two ways. First, it’s only once a month – giving you lots of time to consider your entry before the end of the calendar month. Second, and most important, this is a BLOG HOP (after all, it is the CBBH – Conejo Blanco Blog Hop, meaning white rabbit in Spanish), so DON’T FORGET that in your post you need to add links to two blogs that you have visited and commented on during the past month. That way, when we visit each other, we can HOP OVER to your links, connect with others and share a little blog love around!
My Featured Blog Links for this month:
Casa Az provides an online scrapbook of daily events in the life the Queen of Tapas! Canadian by birth, Shawn is a cancer survivor now living with her little friends in the Andalucían capital of Seville, where she conducts tapas tours for visitors to the city.
Caroline Angus Baker is a self-professed Duende-loving Kiwi novelist, commentator on modern and historical Spain and Spanish Civil War nerd, full of bullfighting praise. She’s had a busy 2013, too!
I’d love to you pop along and say HOLA to both of these ladies. Tell them Marianne sent you!
So that´s the CBBH Photo Challenge for January, everyone!
Remember, all you have to do is post your entry by the end of the month, tag your entry ‘CBBH Photo Challenge’, link back to this blog and, most importantly, don´t forget to add links to any two blogs that you´ve commented on during the past month, so that we can all HOP OVER and have a look. Make sure you FOLLOW THIS BLOG so you don´t miss next month´s exciting challenge!
For more information on how the CBBH Photo Challenge works click here.
I hope everyone taking part enjoys the exposure the CBBH Photo Challenge offers to featured blogs and, who knows, you may end up finding a new favourite! I´m looking forward to seeing your interpretations.

Hola, Marianne …
Could you tell me where I can locate a few more hours in the day so I can keep on top of the many posts I’ve missed?
I wanted to do this challenge so much but time had gotten away from me. I thought I’d add your challenge to this
weeks Weekly challenge as one of my photo was a selfie of an artist at this Street Art festival.
Thank you for hosting CCBH. I always enjoy the entries when I’m able to visit the other bloggers. I hope to visit some in the next few days.
Happy Sunday !!!!!
Ah – a few more hours in the day?? Hmmmm … think we could all do with some of those sometimes, Issy!
I’m so glad you joined in with my Street Art Challenge – and it merged perfectly with this week’s WPC, by Cherie – didn’t it?
Love the children’s chalk art – AMAZING!!

Phew…three days to go and I made it.
Absolutely lovely, Jo. It had slipped my mind that Katikati is the world capital of street art!
Isn’t Ken Rockwell’s site amazing? I knew you would love it.
I do. Thanks so much for pointing me in his direction. I love popping in to try out things that are new.
I am not sure if that one was up when you were here, but it is one of my favourite ones now in the town.
I don’t believe it was. It’s lovely 🙂
I think so Marianne. They had an art festival recently and added some new ones. I will have to get my act together and go take some pictures.

Here is my contribution – a little selection of London street art by Phlegm.
Hi Debbie – I added the link to your post BTW – I think you must have forgotten to add it! No matter.
These street artists often have such descriptive names, don’t they? Phlegm – who’d have thought it?! Very distinctive style though 🙂
Thanks for sharing your two links – they are great photographers.

I finally got around to rejoining the CBBH. Thanks for the great topic, Marianne. Here’s some street art from Portugal: http://juliedawnfox.com/2014/01/19/cbbh-photo-essay-portuguese-street-art/
Wonderful photos Julie. Great idea to show art from a few different cities, too 🙂
I really enjoyed visiting the two links you shared. I’ve found two new blogs to follow 🙂
Thanks, Marianne. I enjoyed seeing the vast array of street art in Spain from other CBBHers too.
Valencia is a big open canvas for incredible, quality street art. I wrote about it here a couple of years ago:
I’m in the process of interviewing some local street artists, but I doubt that will be ready for a blog post in time for this challenge. Still, glad to see you all turning a spot light on these artists’ work. I’ll be following the posts with great interest.
Yes, I came across your post via Lucy, the other day.
Very nice job indeed 🙂
Thank you for making this competition! I thought I’d give it a go…
Great photos Lucy – I must have missed the street art when I last visited Valencia. I guess that means I’ll have to come back 🙂

Right. I’m actually going to take part this month. Brace yourself!!
OK …. braced and waiting! lol
OK, it took me awhile but mine is up at http://emiliopasquale.wordpress.com/2014/01/06/cbbh-photo-challenge-street-art/. ! can not wait to see what others have found in their cities.
You’ve included some great shots in Las Vegas. Presumably from what you say, these have all been painted over now? That’s a shame – but I guess it gives someone else a chance to shine 🙂
I’m not sure all have been painted over. Maybe half were. Maybe now the other half are.

Happy New Year to you, Marianne, and thanks so much for your postcard from Nürnberg. What an amazing trip you’ve had. I really appreciate your remembering to send the cards from each place. xx
Happy New Year, Sylvia.
I enjoyed sending you the postcards – glad they all arrived safely. Sadly, that was the last of the 6 – but still, you never know …. 🙂
Forgot to say that the street art is amazing. 🙂
Happy New Year, Marianne! I’ve been slacking on the photo challenge front and just popped over to see what the theme for January’s CBBH is, only to find it’s perfect for me. Thank you, I’ll be back with a post shortly 🙂
OOHHHH … can’t wait! 🙂
Happy New Year, BTW!
Great street art, Marianne. Sorry there’s no street art in our valley, so I’ll be missing from the photo challenge this month. SD
I guess your street art is olive trees! 🙂
Wow, they are brilliant. 🙂
So, when you come to Nerja, Ruth, (as seen on your “Places I want to visit”) you’ll have to pop along and see the street art in Malaga for yourself 🙂
They ARE brilliant!
Happy New Year.
well funny you say that, because I could well be there in May!
WooHoo!! Make it a plan 🙂

Certainly is! 🙂
I love those two so much – the only sad thing is that they were supposed to be painted on the same days, but owing to high winds hitting the left building, “D*Face” was not able to start on the same day so there was about 48 hours between them being completed. It was still fascinating to watch them on a daily basis though!
I wish I’d seen them being painted. Fascinating
It was amazing – needed a head for heights I can tell you!!
I can believe that, Michael!
Thanks so much for the mention and the linkage. I’ve actually got a Málaga street art blog post in the works but am way behind on things. Perhaps I’ll have some extra time this month to catch up. Feliz Año!
You’re welcome – I know how much you love your visits to Málaga, Shawn.
Very best of wishes to you for 2014.
This is stunning work! Not as grand but Bristolian, http://lucidgypsy.wordpress.com/2014/01/01/cbbh-photo-challenge-street-art/
Yes indeed – very commendable street art, Gilly.
Thanks for sharing links to Paul and Donna’s blogs – I enjoyed visiting them and hope others will too 🙂

Hard to imagine how such massive works of art are created! Astounding. Thanks for following my adventures and I very much look forward to reading your posts in 2014,
Yes I agree, it is difficult to imagine – and it only took about three days I believe!
Thanks for following 🙂
I love street art especially good street art! Happy New Year!
All the best for 2014 to you and your family.
That is an incredible street art, Marianne!
It truly is HUGE, Amy 🙂
Stunning shot and street art Marianne. Wish we had some here. 😀
Wishing you a beautiful and blessed 2014. 😀 *hugs*
Thank you, Sophia 🙂
Hope your 2014 is everything you wish for yourself.

Amazing, great art and capture! Happy new year, Ron.
Thanks, Ron. Happy New Year to you too 🙂
Wow, amazing! Happy new year MArianne! 🙂
Happy New Year Ioanna. How are you? Haven’t seen you around for a while.
I am fine Marianne, nice to see you too after such a long time! I haven’t been blogging that regularly but I never forget my blogging friends! 🙂
Is Shepard Fairey his real name?!?!
I believe so 🙂
Thanks for adding to my NY cheer 😉
