Feisty and biting, political slogans abound here-- ranging from 'Oust Chávez' to 'Better living is Socialist living'. But often just as equally opinionated are the artistic murals that grace the walls of the city. Bolívar, Chávez and Che dominate. Below, a small sample.

'We are culture; we make revolution.'
Close up of the previous shot: The country's diversity is often showcased through these murals, with a heavy emphasis on Indigenous culture, which is often likened to Socialism.
