Street Artists and Mexican Neighborhood

July 29, 2015 Art 0

the government of mexico recently collaborated with a group of local street artists called Germen crew to paint a 20,000 square meter mural across the facades of 209 homes in the district of Palmitas in Pachuca, Mexico. The project was intended to bring about visual and social transformation by temporarily providing jobs and, according to some reports, reduce crime and violence in the neighborhood.

I think this is great, Tapping into the imaginative talents of local street artists, illustrators and graphic designers is a very effective way to make bland public spaces, old buildings, bridges and car parks bloom with humanity and vibrant life.
