In mid-November, female artists from different Latin American countries participated in Warmi Paint, an all-female festival engineered by Maria Castillo, aka Toofly. The festival was started to inspire and support female artists, but aside from the positive vibes, the festival also produced one of the biggest pieces of art in Ecuador, a 131-foot by 26-foot mural on the Universidad Central Facultad de Administración.

“This is the first large scale mural in Ecuador,” Toofly told Vibe Viva. “…It’s a sure sign that the country is moving in the right direction with the street art movement.”

Though the 131-foot mural is the most visible, it’s certainly not the only amazing piece of art that came out of Warmi Paint. Check out more kick ass street art below:
