Muralist Patricio Madero has left his mark on Chilean walls and history for decades. His roots go back to the late 1960s with his creation of the mural art collective Ramona Parra Brigade. Under President Salvador Allende, the brigade gained members nationwide and became an important cultural movement. During Augusto Pinochet's miilitary dictatorship, street art was part of the counterculture resistance to that regime. Now muralists like Madero are celebrated heroes of the new democracy.
