Mexican Walls


Mexican Walls attempts to express the vibrance of Mexican culture as seen in its vernacular architecture. Colour is everywhere, belying the stereotypes embodied in the border wall that predominates impressions to the north.


Walking through various neighbourhoods in Mexico City and then in the small town of Metepec, one experiences the liveliness of colour that people surround themselves with. Some key locations are featured, such as the home of Frida Kahlo and the street where the film Roma was shot and where the filmmaker grew up. Whether private homes or graffiti on shop shutters, there is life expressed everywhere.
