“Age of Omuktlans” Streetart & Artworks based on mexican culture by El Curiot
Lapiztola: From Oaxaca City to London Town ‘Democracia Real Ya!,’ is an exciting exhibition of street art by Rosario Martínez Llaguno and Roberto Vega Jiménez, members of the Mexican art collective Lapiztola Stencil, based in Oaxaca. This collective was formed following teachers’ strikes in Oaxaca in 2006, which were violently suppressed by the state. Street art became a form of political protest, highlighting the range of issues which Mexicans face, and providing hope and inspiration.
