After Italy, Portugal and Argentina, our friend Francisco Diaz aka Pastel is not slowing down with his work and his beautiful mural in Playa del Carmen proves it.
During his recent stay in Mexico Argentinian artist painted a new piece titled “Pre-hispanic conquest”. Addressing the issue of colonization of central and south America by the Spanish, this beautiful work is another great example of his unique visual language. With a soft gradient background that matches the sun setting sky, different plants depicted with complementing colors and using the structure shape as an unusual format the piece appears as a large painted placed in the middle of a town.
Check out more detail photos after the jump and come back soon for more original street art works from around the blue planet.

About Sasha Bogojev

Growing up skateboarding I always enjoyed board graphics, Toy Machine adds and art section in Thrasher magazine. Around that time I started flirting with graffiti which eventually lead to appreciating street and urban art. Few years later I ended up with an Internet based job. Too much online time on my hands resulted in getting involved in art related forums, and finally writing for various art websites.
