One of the most exciting and talented street artists from Mexico City is without a doubt, Curiot. Over the last year this artist has pushed his work in new directions, bringing something different with each new mural. This new hybrid, vegetation friendly character is radiating with oxygen and vivid colors. We think it may need to watered regularly?

We showed you yesterday the work of NOSEGO, who is the other part of "Unknown Elements" with Mexico City's Curiot.
