Mexico City artist Mazatl crafts murals that both implement and emulate the artist’s talents in woodcut imagery. In frequent collaborations with fellow mural and graphic artists like Kill Joy, the artist’s distinct use of blacks and perspective make for eye-popping efforts across unexpected spots. The above mural, in Cholula, Puebla, is one of the artists’ most recent pieces.
“Mazatl is a graphic maker who uses the public space as his main way to communicate ideas and emotions seeking to create conversations towards collective liberation,” says Justseeds, a cooperative that includes Mazatl. “Mazatl’s work is characterized by interventions of large scale woodcuts in the public areas, as well as graphic murals. He dedicates a large part of his work towards collaborating with groups, collectives, other artists and movements that seek social, political and environmental justice in our communities.”
