MAUS- Malaga’s Urban Street Art

Malaga’s urban street art, MAUS (Malaga Arte Urbano SoHo) is mainly found in SoHo, which is the area known as the “Barrio de las Artes,” or the “Art Neighborhood.” It is part if a new initiative that grew out of a desire to reform the neighborhood just behind the CAC (the Center for Contemporary Art). The neighborhood was once an important bourgeois area with beautiful architecture, however over the last 50 years or so, it has gotten to be a run down, less frequented area of the city. Now this area is home to both cultural events and street art in Malaga.

The MAUS project offers more than just street art in Malaga.

There are a range of cultural events including photography, painting, sculpture, dance, theater and music. Along with the CAC, this initiative has served to transform the neighborhood and showcase Malaga’s vibrant art scene. Malaga’s urban street art is well worth a look, and if you’re not sure where to start, we suggest you begin your time at the CAC and then wind your way through the streets of SoHo exploring the different murals. In fact some of them have their own little plaques with a QR code so you can learn more about the work.
