Cuban Courtyard Mural • Monday Mural, 23 March

This Cuban Courtyard Mural, for Monday Mural, 23 March, is an attempt by the artist to make something out of these otherwise blind walls. It is a tribute o the Cuban poet Bonifacio Byrne, after whom this street was named. Many streets have both a name and a number; most also have two names, one pré- and one post-revolution. This Calle 79 is also called Calle Contreras, though locals still refer to it as Calle Bonifacio Byrne.

  1. Wonderful murals … the tricky perspectives of the “streets” are especially nice. I like the “girl” too.

  2. That is fantastic!! I wonder how many people try and go through those doors, as everything looks so realistic.
    It must be quite confusing for streets to be known by 2 or 3 different names.
    Thanks for participating Tiong.
