For the exhibition Pop-Up Spicy Mexican Design which is going on right now in the Mexican Consulate of San Francisco, the illustrator Paulina Suarez and I had the great pleasure to work during 2 weeks plus a third on and off third for the creation of a mural for this exhibition.
Muchísimas gracias a Christopher y Marimar, quienes nos estuvieron apoyando durante todo el proceso del mural.
El mural “El Mercado de Celso” busca reflejar el mercado mexicano: churrigueresco, folklórico, colorido, picante, caótico y con muchas historias que contar.
Los personajes del mercado buscar escapar de su vendedor, Celso. Algunos de ellos lograron escaparse de verdad.
The mural “El Mercado de Celso” (Celso’s Market) reflects the Mexican market: “churrigueresque”, folkloric, colorful, spicy, chaotic and with a lot of stories within. The characters are looking to escape their destiny from the market owner Celso. Some of them actually did.
