JAZ at the Color Walk Festival in Mexico

Muralist JAZ finished a wall in the festival Color Walk in Ciudad Juarez Mexico. The city marked by recent years of severe violence is trying to shed its infamy as one of the most dangerous cities in all of North and South America. This particular mural that JAZ finished is exactly about that political an social situation in Mexico and it reflects on the eagle myth with irony.   It is also supposed to be a tribute to the 43 students that went missing on Sept. 26th.

With a  goal to creatively raise awareness for the conservation of the ocean and the need to protect whale sharks and manta rays off the Yucatan peninsula, internationally acclaimed contemporary artists  were invited from every where.  Curiot, Saner, Nosego, Shark Toof, Tristan Eaton, Celeste Byers, Meggs, Cinzah Merkens, Tatiana Suárez, Hannah Stouffer, Smithe, Aaron Glasson, Yoh Nagao, Vexta and Pelucas attended the festival.

Each artist was given the opportunity to swim with and study whale sharks and oceanic manta rays and experience these endangered animals in their natural environment.  Manta Ray 1 SEA WALLS: MURALS for OCEANS at Isla Mujeres, Mexico Yoh Nagao whale sharks Vexta Tristan Eaton tatiana suarez street art smithe Shark Toof sea walls saner residencia gorila public art Pelucas pangeeaseed nosego Mural mexico Meggs manta ray juxtapoz latin america isla mujeres hannah stouffer Graffiti environment curiot Cinzah Merkens Celeste Byers Aaron Glasson 1xrun Whale Shark 1 SEA WALLS: MURALS for OCEANS at Isla Mujeres, Mexico Yoh Nagao whale sharks Vexta Tristan Eaton tatiana suarez street art smithe Shark Toof sea walls saner residencia gorila public art Pelucas pangeeaseed nosego Mural mexico Meggs manta ray juxtapoz latin america isla mujeres hannah stouffer Graffiti environment curiot Cinzah Merkens Celeste Byers Aaron Glasson 1xrun

Mexican muralist and illustrator Jesús Benítez (also known as Dhear) is recognized for his unique work on a variety of mediums that range from paintings, sculptures to murals installed all over the world. With roots in graffiti, Benítez developed his signature style from a complex evolution of techniques influenced by his passion in literature, Sci-Fi movies, nature, and the works of Moebius and Roger Dean. His fantastical characters and subject matters foretell a breaking down of human structures and its technology. It also focuses on how these deconstructions can take on organic forms that merge with bacteria, fungi and parasitic life forms resulting in strange creatures and psychedelic worlds. Fifty24SF Gallery is proud to present ‘Thésis’, the first North American solo-show by Jesús Benítez, showcasing his unique presence in the world of street art and muralists.
