“One year after they hit Panama for the “Somos Luz Project”, Madrid’s collective Boa Mistura went to Mexico, in Qerétaro’s area, to renew the process and refresh this time a whole neighborhood. Colonia Las Américas thus saw its first houses painted with warm and vibrant colors by the Spanish street artists who, as they use to do, invited the local people to participate. Patterns covered from Mexico’s Otomi culture complete this urban re-appropriation. A social and cultural artistic project whose second phase will begin in September.”
