This month, 40+ Colombian and international artists will present their artwork on the walls of an empty Chinese restaurant due to be demolished.  Graffiti, murals, photography and video will all be on display at Tsunami, a travelling exhibition. The event is the second of Lavamoatumbá – an initiative encouraging young artists to create before a space is destroyed.
