I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

These four photos show different parts of a single, awesome mural that was recently painted by an artist known as Curiot in Mexico City:
“I’m Curiot a Mexican visual artist. I just recently painted a 100foot long mural at Centro Cultural Border in Mexico City. The title of the mural is “Pasaje de Gorathma” or “Tale of Gorathma”. Gorathma is a mythical character that I created which represents the spirit of nature in its animal form. In this work he shows us how an innocent and insignificant little creature (the little dudes running around) can grow to became a plague or a virus devouring everything in its path unconscious of its imminent self destruction.”

GOT LIGHT STENCILS?
“After the 6.3 quake occurred in Canterbury NZ, people were involved to help their neighbors, to rebuild houses, to clean the street or to make donations. I wanted to contribute by doing something too, giving what I was able to, some of my time and skills.Giving support to my friends, to the men and women I met, who told me their stories. I liked somehow to show this support and admiration to all those people I don’t even know but who stand strong facing this drama with courage and humility.It’s also important to me not to forget the loss when the main thought is about to rebuild.
I might be a ridiculous rain drop in the ocean of help Christchurch got from every part of the country, but I definitely wanted to be a part of it.
This project has been submitted to the Christchurch City Council. The donation of prints didn’t find any reply yet - everybody can understand that they may have some bigger preoccupations right now - but I’d still like to give it some exposure.”
