Santiago, the capital of Chile comes across as a thriving paradox when it comes to its eccentric art scene. The South American cosmopolitan city’s turbulent history entrenched the cultural and artistic surge and stunted the growth of contemporary artists. It is of late that finally, art in Santiago is burgeoning. Santiago may not boast of the best in the art business but is fast upping its global image to offer more to culture-seeking people. The many art museums and Galerias de Arte Santiago overflow with both contemporary and pre-Columbian art leaving one baffled with diversity and aesthetics. Street art was used both as a weapon against the dictatorship then and now as an art canvas. Apart from these, art in Santiago is celebrated through various events and fairs recognized internationally as a harbinger of cultural exchange and a shared platform to showcase artistic talent.

Museums and galleries may be the obvious and most accepted abode of art in Santiago, but street art in Santiago breathes life and is the heart of artistic ventures in the city.
