Moroccan capital of Rabat recently hosted Jidar urban art festival which produced a series of mural through the city. One of the invited artists was Saner from Mexico, known for his figurative works strongly influenced by Mexican tradition and culture.

For this work the artist mixed the elements of his native culture along with the local elements. Using bright colors and a simple composition, he created a large portrait of a masked man serving tea while standing in the water. By adding symbolic elements to his work and uniting the distant traditions of Mexico and Morocco, the finished work undoubtedly speaks of unity and possibility for people of different cultures to get a long.

Check out couple of process photos after the jump and stay tuned for more news from the streets of Rabat coming soon.

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.
