SERES QUERIDOS MONTERREY
"Seres Queridos" was an international art project that aimed to create a bridge between the residents of a certain neighborhood in a city and their urban environment. The project was based on active community participation.
“Seres Queridos” recognized the value of the city, not only for its history, its monuments and iconic buildings, but also for those who live there. The stories of the loved ones gave the streets of the city a new sparkle of life and made them a living space with unique identity.
People from the neighborhood chose and appointed the loved ones of their own community: unknown, anonymous loved by all. These anonymous people became important by emotions. Loved ones became great. The murals reflect the soul and acts of such persons.
From April 26 to May 6th, artists Atma (France), El Mac (USA), El Niño de las Pinturas (Spain) and Jorge Rodríguez (Spain) performed giant pieces of art using Monterrey walls as a canvas.
