"I don't neglect my roots, my greatest pleasure is to paint in communities, bringing art and culture to otherwise forgotten and precarious neighborhoods. I use Graffiti in the context of creating a space to exhibit my art to society, my themes are full of colors and forms of protest .."

A Mexican artist fell down to the ground from ~ 5 meters high while he made a mural a few days ago, I think he is still in a coma 😔, I remembered it because I saw the size of this mural and how dangerous it can be sometimes. Any way nice mural, creative and colorful 🙂

Very sad news, I hope his condition improves 🙏
Safety is important especially at heights, but when you're in your work, in the creative process, you can forget about your environment.

Wow, those are beautiful art made by a talented artits/artists

Yeah beautiful and very colorful mural. Cool to see when you drink your coffee

Really awesome, and with a positive message from its artists. I think that big feline would make a great cartoon character, eh? 😁

Cool cat indeed, is he a good guy or a bad guy? Hard to say 😀

It is indeed a pretty cool cat, though I think it would be a slightly villainous character, borne out of a tragic childhood, but is nevertheless a wholly nice person that helps out our hero, tagging along the way 😆

A really nice looking coffee shop! Great art on the wall :)

Yep beautiful mural and good coffee, perfect mix 😀
