Colectivo Licuado – Street Artists from Uruguay

Always in quest of new artistic talents, I discovered a few weeks ago a duo of exceptional street artists from Uruguay. Their name is “Coletivo Licuado”. They use the spray paint as virtuosos. I am positive that in a very short time they will have international recognition. I interviewed them for streetart360.  I have also added links to discover their artwork.  Enjoy!


Where are you from ? Where are you based?
We’re based in Montevideo, Uruguay. And we’re both born in Uruguay.

Why did you choose Colectivo Licuado as street artist name? Tell us more about your collective.
Licuado in spanish means: when you put a lot of fruits on a blender and makes a fruit juice, when we started to paint was like that, we used to picked images from differents places and put it on one work, like a collage but a little different, later we started to change but we love our name.
