REVOLUCION DE MEXICO

The above images are separate pieces spread out in an underpass in Mexico City. I believe they are depicting revolution. These murals go on for a long time, but as I was heading deeper and deeper into unknown territory and i was alone, I eventually had to abandon the space. Below, you can see how they are featured on the streets:

HATS OFF TO THE CLOWNS

Walking around downtown Mexico City the other day, I looked up and saw this cool mural taking up an entire side of a building:

EXHIBITION OF MAYAN EMPEROR PAKAL

I had some time at the airport today and came upon a cool-looking sculpture, so I took a picture of it. Then I saw another sculpture, but designed differently. Then another one and another one and so on.They’re scattered throughout the Mexico City Airport (Benito Juarez International.) I decided to research it and have discovered that it’s the work of artist Jeremy Penn, or at least led by him, but other artists were invited to design their own Pakal. You can read more about it here, http://www.jeremypenn.com/2012/11/an-exhibition-of-mayan-sculptures-adorn-the-worlds-airports/ but I can say that Pakal was a Mayan emperor in Pelenque from 603-683 AD and he was 12 years old when he became king. The pictures were all taken using some aspect of Instagram.

MEXICO CITY MURAL

This is a work obviously commissioned to honor the 25th anniversary of a museum. Very colorful. I wonder how much time it took? Because it’s a long wall and one continuous theme.
