JADE and Evoca1 were also part of the Constructo Street Art Festival which recently took place on the streets of Mexico City.
The newly formed duo spent a few days working on this beautiful piece which is featuring each artist’s distinctive style and imagery.
While researching the history of Mexico city for their collaboration, the street art duo came across a statue of Hernán Cortés, a spanish conquistador who led an expedition that caused the fall of the Aztec Empire. The statue showed Cortés stepping on the head of an indigenous man. This is an attempt at depicting the reconquering of Quetzalcoatl, as it drags the sculpture under the waters that Mexico city was built on.
Reconvene after the jump for a bunch of extra images and then make sure to drop your two cents down in our comments section.
