La Tabacalera, a street art gallery in Madrid’s city center.

There are many groups or associations at La Tabacalera, but the one who got our attention was a collective called El Keller. They are fully commited to street art, and usually collaborate with local artists to create their artwork at the underground level of this warehouse. You should also pay attention to Madrid Street art Project, the project behind Muros Tabacalera (the walls on the outside part of Glorieta Embajadores and Calle Miguel Servet). A whole week during the month of June where 24 local and international artists develop their artwork. The 2016 edition was called ‘Naturalezas Urbanas’ and it represented the connection between the modern urban lifestyle and our natural roots.
