Ciudad que Resplandece Mural (City That Shines)

Mural Ciudad que Resplandece


Julio Peña Tomala.


The mural shows the wildlife of Guayaquil combined with illustrations of typical houses of the city, characterized by its chaza windows and baluster balconies.

Among the details that are highlighted in the mural are fungi, owls, iguanas, pelicans, and the plague of locusts, among others.

Tiled ceramic was used for the elaboration of the mural. The wall was prepared with mortar, then the designs were drawn to scale and a black line was painted that was filled with pieces of the colored ceramic, according to the original design.

The mural was awarded in the fifth mural contest organized by the Municipality of Guayaquil, which took place in February 2003.
