Wander the streets of the Roma Norte area of Mexico City, and you might stumble upon the latest interventions by Xomatok (previously). The artist painted bold color spectrums on cracked and split sidewalks, which have erupted around the defiant roots of trees. Vibrant pinks, yellows, and blues blanket the sides of the concrete, juxtaposing the natural and human-made and highlighting the brute force of the wooden giants in the urban environment. There are currently five works in the Manifestos series, and you can follow additions to the project and Xomatok’s latest works on Instagram.
