Tijuana Photo of the Day / Tijuana Urban Art

Imagine! Tijuana, Day 62


Another gorgeous mural from Camino Verde, painted by El Norteño (Alonso Delgadillo), a visual artist and professor at UABC-CITEC, the Center for Engineering and Technology at the University Autonoma of Baja California. Driving around Tijuana, you will see many works of street art by El Norteño in random out of the way places. His friend told me yesterday that Alonso is very assertive about his art interventions: he will knock on someone's door or approach the owner of a business, and tell them directly, "You know, this wall here, it's kind of falling apart and it makes your place look run down.  Why don't you let me paint it for you?" And the results are fantastic!
