Mexico City excels at many things, and one of them is street art. I’ve done a lot of walking and admiring these past two weeks. On this, my last day – surrounded by loose clothes and half-packed bags – looking back over the photos I took along the way makes me feel a little less sad to be leaving.
Birds always catch my eye, of course, whether they’re semi-realistic in Romita…
…or utterly fantastic alongside the Parque Mexico.
All over the city, you’ll find depictions of people – some named, some intentionally left nameless – in a variety of styles.
Sometimes the simplest works are especially gripping…
…but there’s also something to be said for going for broke.
Hasta luego, CDMX.
