Mexican street artists paint town of Pachuca colourful. No, it wasn’t illegal. It was local government’s idea. They invited graffiti artists to paint a large mural in an effort to reduce violence among young people! Collective called German Crew painted 209 houses on a hill in the depressed neighbourhood of Palmitas. The mural covers some 20,000 square meters and the artists used around 20,000 litres of paint to create the impressive piece called ‘El Macro Mural Barrio de Palmitas’.
