Based out of Madrid, Boa Mistura (meaning ‘good mixture’ in Portuguese) is on a mission to bring about rejuvenation throughout the world by spreading art ‘as a symbol of social change’. This art collective has traveled all over, from Brazil to South Africa, and their latest efforts took the team to Querétaro in Mexico, where ‘the team recruited members of the working class town to paint over 30 buildings overlooking the nearby highway’.
‘But they don’t want to just stop at 30 – the collective hopes to cover all 1,074 buildings in Querétaro. Beautiful and bright oranges, reds, yellows, and greens are used during the project, ‘in an effort to demonstrate how community-based artwork can shape the identity of a neighborhood’. My neighbourhood next, please!
