Raul Ruiz – street artist

Granada’s most famous street artist is Raúl Ruiz (better known as El Niño de las Pinturas). I took a walking tour to see some the work in the Realejo quarter near his home.

In 2013 Granada named a small plaza just outside his house after Joe Strummer of The Clash, a long-time admirer of the city and a regular visitor in the 1980s and ’90s. Ruiz spray-painted a mural.
