The government of Mexico and a youth group made of up of artists, called "GERMEN Crew" came together to create a beautiful mural in Palmitas, which is a town in the Pachuca district. The group painted over 200 homes.
From a distance, you can see that the art is a whip of greens, tangerines, aqua, purple, and pinch of hot and soft pinks. When viewed closely, parts of the mural showcases individual art pieces, like floral scenes.
According to their Facebook page, GERMEN Crew is a youth group that is focused in alternative forms of communication like street art and murals. One of their goals is to have Mexico position themselves as the country known for producing mural art. In addition to that, GERMEN Crew is dedicated to helping the youth in their community. They also organize workshop and talks.
According to streetartnews, those who were affected by this project, which includes 452 families, have seen violence amongst youth eliminated. Also, several new jobs were created.
Hell yes, GERMEN Crew is awesome!
