La Ciudad Mural (The City): Urban and Ecological Contexts

Mural La Ciudad: Contextos Urbanos y Ecológicos


Carlos Chaw Macias.


The work crafted in ceramic presents aspects related to the city, distributed in four murals located in each of the pillars of the overpass.

The first describes the Simon Bolivar Pier with a background that comprises modern architecture and the new tunnels. The second mural is the representation of the old Guayaquil, formed by Las Peñas Neighborhood and the Planchada Fort. The third and the fourth represent the marginal part formed by wood houses, aquatic fauna and the Guayas River.

The murals were awarded to the author on the competition carried out by the Municipality of Guayaquil, which took place on July 17, 2001.
