29 Nov The Mural in Mexico is Finished
‘As They Pass By – Walls of Connection’
Indigenous Mural in Mexico finsished!
The Jimmy Nelson Foundation financed yet another round of As They Pass By – Walls of Connection, this time in Mexico! After the mural in Bogota (Colombia), Mexico was next on the list. In the cultural heart of Querétaro, in the Centro Educativo y Cultural del Estado de Querétaro another mural was painted by the help of various indigenous artists beginning of November.
Leading artist of the project was Victor López, working together with members of the La Madriguera Gráfica collective. Most of the artists have Zapoteca roots, one of the 56 ethnic groups in Mexico.An important cultural feature of the mural was the calavera (skull), playing a symbolic role in the celebration of the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos).
