Muros en Blanco Festival

Client

Lori Christmas Tree

Overview

I was invited as selected artist to mural festival “Muros en Blanco” in San Miguel de Allende. The commission was to paint on the sidewall of Local Resident Lori Christmas Tree, a wonderful local artist who was excited and guide us through the design project. The wall is two stories high and aprox 48 feet wide.

Goals

The owner of the home, along the founders of Muros en Blanco, are huge supporters of the local arts. We wanted to integrate elements of local culture, traditions, flora and fauna. I wanted to recreate the importance of muralism and folk arts as a reflection of local mythology and tales.

Process

We all had a meeting and discuss the conceptual, proceeded with sketches and completed. Everyone was really happy and excited with results.
