All over Mexico, street artists make a name for themselves with works of art adorning public spaces.

In Mexico City, the Axolotl Collective has operatied for five years. In that time they have made some well-known street art in the Centro Historico, Colonia Doctores and Torreblanca districts of the city.

Curiot originally hails from the Pacific state of Michoacan, but more recently made pieces in Canada, the United States, Mexico and other countries around the world. He is known for geometric patterns that draw on pre-Hispanic culture.

Flying the flag for female street artists is Paola Delfin, from Mexico City. She is one of the most famous artists on the global scene, and recently had an exhibition in the United States.

Next up is Farid Rueda, best known for brightly colored works in Mexico City and Paris. His work tends to be large-scale, with plenty of social commentary.

Rueda names a fellow street artist, Lesuperdemon, as one of his biggest inspirations. The latter uses a lot of geometry in his work, as well as cartoon eyes.

Tellaeche studied art in Luxembourg before returning home to Mexico to work on colorful, pastel pieces. His work has drawn attention around the world and led to partnerships with brands such as Nestle and Adidas, as well as Amnesty International.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
