Do you love art? Contemporary art to be exact? If so, then Malaga is the right destination for you. With the wide variety of art centers and smaller art galleries creating a whole art district Malaga provides a wide variety of cultural events and activities.
Inspired by the Contemporary Art Centre of Malaga that is dedicated to the exhibition of artwork from the contemporary period, Soho has grown into a whole nother world with buildings covered in graffiti and murals from famous artists such as Obey D*FACE, Pejac, Faith47 and Sephard Fairey.
The illustrations are all part of the Maus (Malaga Arte Urbano Soho) project, aimed at transforming the walls of Málaga. At their website (mausmalaga.com) you can find information about the artists and their inspirations.
You may not want to miss out on Guadalmedina river that lines west side of Soho and has also given space for people to express themselves as the concrete walls are covered in many graffities the same as the district itself.
Aside from street art you can also find many art galleries inhabiting the mostly abandoned neighborhood such as JM Gallery, La Canalla studio of personal works by the artist Francisco Carmona.
And of course to top it all off you can find many cafes that you can lounge at after walking around and getting inspired and moved by art going from something you might find at an art gallery to clean lines and bright colors as if came straight from a comic book that you could find at the local comic book store.
Or maybe you can end your trip with a play at the Almeda theater that is one of the most important theatre spaces in Malaga and offers a full range of works: comedies, children’s shows, concerts and film screenings.
Whatever you decide, a walk around Soho won’t disappoint you.
