Look How Street Art Completely Transformed This Neighborhood In Mexico
Up close, each apartment is painted one or two extremely bright colors, lime green, light or dark yellow, purple, orange or red. From further away, the neighborhood of Palmitas, in Pachuca, Mexico can be viewed as a riotous, giant and coordinated street mural. The incredible neighborhood beautification project helped to turn the formerly rough area around. The Mexican government joined with a youth organization called German Crew to create the mural, made up of an entire hillside of walls. The transformation took five whole months to complete, which is no wonder, considering its massive scale. The mural covers 209 buildings in Palmitas…that's about 65,000 square feet of walls painted. According to 'streetartnews', the project affected 452 families, a total of 1808 people. Violence there was almost completely eradicated, due to the project, the publication claimed. Wow! Take a look!
