Gato Ghetto

12 Jul 2013

Five talented urban artists merged their styles and aerosols in honor of the ghetto cats, or as we know them better, the stray cats that abound in Panama. You see a lot of them, especially in the areas near the Canal or the ports, where they proliferate and receive care from the workers that are around.

This ingenious collaboration took place over the course of Saturday November 17. The five graffitis were painted directly on the metal door of a hangar next to the Mirador de Diablo, while friends and curious workers come to visit the area with a beer in their hand.

Many cats overseeing the work and a couple of dogs that even if they were not the honorees this time, they were happy with the rain of sandwiches thrown at their feet by the artist group.

About DA Workshops

In order for everybody to get the best experience possible, we try to work as close together with our artists as possible. Community members hanging out in the workshops allow everybody a free exchange of ideas whether you work at night or day. Because we at DA are always looking for the best results, we support all our projects with a framework of infrastructure. This includes a workshop, required tools and all working materials as well as a free room and board and some financial support for the whole time of an artist's stay.
