Curiot’s New Mural for City Beautification Project, Frágil

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Mexico City-based street artist Curiot (featured in our current issue, Hi-Fructose Vol. 29) recently participated in a project called Frágil, an alternative civic beautification initiative that invites street artists to paint on decrepit buildings awaiting demolition. Known for his playful yet philosophical imagery of god-like monster figures, Curiot created a site-specific mural that incorporated the surrounding debris. Frágil is an unusual concept (for a legal mural project) because the artists must go into it knowing that their work will soon be destroyed, but, then again, ephemerality is what makes graffiti and street art the fast-paced game that it is. Take a look at some photos of the process below.
