Mexic-Arte Mural -- Los Dos and Jellyfish

Los Dos of El Paso, and the Jellyfish Collective of Ciudad Juarez (Mexico) collaborated on a mural/wheat paste on the Mexic-Arte building, while the artist talk was going on inside.  This happened the day after our opening.

The mural on social media:

UPDATE (March 9)Mural enhanced by Augment El Paso by SXSW!

UPDATE:  It looks like this mural will be pushed into augmented reality by Augment El Paso.  Probably in time for SXSW (March 9 - 13)!

Meanwhile, in March during South by Southwest, CixMugre painted another fantastic mural outside of Mexic-Arte, next to the mural of  Los Dos and Jellyfish:

Update: Mexic-Arte revisited on April 19th -- stellar murals!

On the Mexic-Arte Facebook page, for April 12th, there is a video story about all these murals.

Update (June 28, 2018)Taller 75 Grados, in Mexico City, pulled serigraph edition of this mural, so that both the artwork and the "augmented reality" will be preserved.  

On Instagram and YouTube!!!

Update (Sept 10, 2018) -- The serigraph is on display at the Delray Arts Warehouse, north of Miami, for the "Social Code" exhibit, along with Nani Chacon's print.  Both prints were enhanced with augmented reality by Augment El Paso.
