Hecho en Oaxaca: a photo album by Diana Ricci

Street art in Oaxaca, done on the street and in the galleries. The masthead photo appeared on the wall of an empty building on Abasolo street and another, below, was on a wall on Allende near Garcia Vigil. The rest were photographed on the walls of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MACO). The entire building, including the patios, was patched, and painted white, and a few of the best street graffiti artists were invited to reproduce them there. The show was called "Hecho" (made, done). Some of the results can be seen below.

This show was a lot about doorways and corners...

This is the back courtyard.

There is a tv inside the hole in the coffin.

Eventually, everything goes to the garbage collector...
This was taken "in situ" on Allende just off the corner of Garcia Vigil.
Two corners for the price of one...
Doorways and windows are as interesting as corners...
This two-dimensional mural has a very 3d look
Dignity, suffering, and the will to endure...

Phantasmic, scary, funny, legendary. Alebrijes, partying at Carnaval...
