Infamous graffiti/fine artist RETNA recently made his way out to Mexico City to crush a gigantic new mural. Invited by The Beauty Project México the LA based mural artist painted his distinct script at the Cuauhtemoc building in the Tlatelolco neighborhood on a 21 story high twin structured building.
Our friend Mocre recently hooked us up with some new mural images pertaining to his new piece “Axolotl”. This piece is inspired in the axolote mexicano (Ambystoma Mexicanum). The axolotl is an amazing animal because they have the ability to regenerate. The animal is currently an endangered species.
The piece also represents the ancient mexican god “Xolotl”, he was the twin brother of Quetzalcoatl. Axolotl was related to the underworld, he was the god of sunset, of deformities, spirits and he could transform into anything.
Mexican artist Smithe One just finished this massive mural, commissioned by the Mexican Institute of Youth (INJUVE) in Metro Salto del Agua which is a metro (subway) station located in the Cuauhtémoc borough in Mexico City.
Well known for his male characters, this piece is a milestone of his career and one of Smithe’s biggest murals located in his hometown. “Ella” is the title of the piece, which means “She” and portrayed the side face of a lady as a homage to all the hardworking, strong and independent women out there. – Enriqueta Arias | Photo credit: Francisco Betanzos
