Concrete Canvas - Mexico City

Mexico, home to esteemed muralists such as Diego Rivera, Julian Beever attempts to create a work that captures the natural and surrealist beauty of Mexico.

I've seen a few of the YouTube videos of this guy from around the world but had not seen this one in Mexico City. Very different work and always interesting interactions with the crowds. In this case especially the police. This 3D drawing is of a Monarch butterfly on the Mexico City Zocolo. He also adds some documentation of the local street artists.


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
