Tag: Dual Year UKMX 2015

London based street artist D*Face recently paid his first ever visit to Mexico to participate in the Dual Year UKMX 2015. The event is a multi faceted program designed to bring more cultural, academic, and commercial projects from the United Kingdom to Mexico. At the same time, Mexico promotes culture, innovation and Mexican commerce in various cities throughout the United Kingdom. D*Face's large scale mural for the project, titled "Catrina", takes up the length of an entire building in the Roma neighborhood. His depiction of a highly glamorized, deathly feminine character combines his macabre pop portraits with traditional Mexican elements.
