The path will lead you to the Universidades Transmilenio station, where you will take a metro bus tour through the Avenida El Dorado, one of the main streets of the city, exclusively destined to accommodate the largest pieces of urban art in town, a landmark that pleases both locals and tourists. This route will show you the work of the best exponents of street art, who supported by the mayoralty, are working on infrastructure projects embellishing huge walls, abandoned buildings and bridges.

There you'll meet Fonso, a recognized graffiti writer and tattoo artist, who will offer you a snack and cup of coffee while teach you the basics of silk-screen, one of the the many techniques which he specializes. You will have the chance to get a sample of the work to take home.
