Ryan Mallett-Outtrim writes in a photo essay for Venezuelan Analysis:

Weeks after his passing, Chavez remains present on every street corner. Not just his face, but his message is encapsulated by street art peppering Merida's public places. Murals celebrate freedom and unity, while speaking out against imperialism and exploitation. Merida's street art are daily reminders of the ongoing revolution.
