A low-income neighborhood in Mexico is now the talk of the town. Germen crew — a youth organization of muralists and street artists — have transformed the village of palmitas into a vibrant rainbow, connecting the community of more than 200 homes through an array of colourful hues.
The group of artists took to the narrow and steep streets that wind throughout the hillside town, individually painting the façades of residences and shops. saturated tones have been applied to the exterior brick surfaces, revealing a fluid and sinuous composition that unites the tightly-packed buildings when viewed from a distance. The project has significantly changed the character of the city, where the outward appearance of the neighborhood now match the colorful and lively personalities and culture of its inhabitants.
