Check out the Instagrammable Street Art & Murals in BGC

Metro Manila, Philippines – Looking for Instagrammable places in BGC, Taguig City? Art abounds the walls of buildings in Bonifacio Global City (BGC)!

It may come as a larger-than-life mural, graffiti, or small detail in one corner, waiting to be discovered. This cultural movement popularly known as Street Art has found its way into the metropolitan city of Taguig just like the famous street art cities in Southeast Asia which also includes Penang.

Thanks to ArtBGC Festival organized by the Bonifacio Arts Foundation (together with LeBasse Projects and Honeycomb Communities), BGC’s murals have become part of its attractions. Since 2015, local and international artists were invited to contribute their installations and graffiti to the cosmopolitan city’s walls.

Local residents and visitors alike will have a blast hunting for street art since they are all Instagram-worthy.

To guide your art walk, check out this map of different wall art in BGC from Art BGC Festival.

    Wow, I missed making it to Taguig while I was in Manila last year, I’ll have to get back! There’s so much color and expression, I had no idea there was such a concentration of street art around the BGC 🙂 Thanks for the photo tour!

  • I love the photo of the Wallflowers!! Street art is one of my favorite parts of exploring a new city. The paint adds so much color and light.

  • Laura Lynch

    These are all exceptionally good! I love seeing great street art. I especially like the one of the bear and the little boy. How real he looks. Almost hard to believe it’s a painting on a wall.

  • What a fun way to present the street art to us. My favourite was the wall of flowers, but in general, I love them all. I am a huge fan of street art and bringing colour into the cities.

  • What a fabulous curated list this is. Each one tells a story. My favourites are the girl on the Bonifacio High Street, Taguig City and Wonderland by Faile. Such contrasts and vibrant hues. Respect to the artists. They bring the city to life!

  • I love street art and seek it out everywhere I go. I must say, the few pieces by Nate Frizell are AMAZING. I adore that mix of childlike and totally detailed. Wow – I’m going to look up more of his stuff right now.

  • Jennifer

    I love the tiger, bear and owl! The Mother Nature one looks like it’s by the same artist who did the beautiful hearts with women on them just outside the Shangri-La at the Fort. I don’t remember seeing all this street art when I was in BGC in October. It must all be new?

  • Sandy N Vyjay

    These are some very beautiful street art. I especially liked the No. 13 Wallflowers by Trip63 and No. 14 Mother Nature: Four Seasons by Dee Jae Pa’este and No. 9 The Heart of God’s Country by Andrew Schoultz. You are absolutely right when you say that they are not only beautiful but have some inner meaning to it which we should think about!
