When you are walking around the city center of Valencia, it’s impossible to avoid the art of David de Limón.

It’s around so many corners, you feel as though you are being stalked by it.

And that’s a good thing.

De Limón is responsible for what has to be the most iconic (it’s certainly the most prevalent) character throughout the city.

Call it street art, call it graffiti, but, if you visit Valencia, there’s no doubt de Limón’s work will imbed itself in your memory as part of the city itself, so intimately linked you won’t be able to imagine these paintings anywhere else.

De Limon’s “Ninjas”

The first thing to know about de Limón’s masked characters is they aren’t really ninjas.

They look like them in their black clothes and black masks that reveals only their eyes.

Instead, they are street artists themselves, who must wear black and cover their faces to do their (illegal) work unseen.

It’s a fitting tribute in a city where the street art is so abundant.

Some of it is sanctioned, some of it isn’t, but it all adds flavor to the city.

And de Limon’s masked artists may be the main ingredient that holds it all together.
