Las Palmitas Mural / Germen Crew


Germen Crew just completed what could be one of the world’s largest murals in a small Mexican pueblo. The colourful mural was Commissioned by the Las Palmitas, Pachuca District municipality in the state of Sinaloa, long known for its role as the Drug Capital of Mexico. The Nuevo Muralisimos of Mexico spent five hard months working with the community to realise this ambitious urban revitalisation program. A massive public art project comprising 209 homes and over 215,000 square feet, the Macro Mural reveals a hybrid style that leans heavily on the group’s graffiti background, deftly coaxing the country’s most recognisable art form into the 21st century — via Inhabitat
