Up until 2014, Jesus Benitez worked under the name of DHEAR, the last we saw of this was in his duo show “La Llegada de Apophis” with fellow Mexican artist Smithe at Fifty24MX in México City. His first solo-show with his new pseudonym, better his actual name, opened last July at Fifty24SF, portraying in his immaculate technique a shift in direction; somewhat rougher yet stylized maintaining his alien like character themed scenarios that we can immediately refer back to him.

Over the course of 31 days, Mexico City-based painter and muralist, Dhear One, painted this striking, eleganttly composed mural on the exterior of National Homeopathic Hospital in Mexico. The artist created this particular piece to attract people to consider alternative medicine and pay tribute to the the traditional pioneers of mural painting in Mexico.

Our old friend David Choe (that full issue with David we did is a bible of how to do art on your own terms) has been extremely busy over the past few months. You could start with his date night with Aubrey Plaza if you wanted to. But Dave is currently in Mexico City, painting murals and collaborating with a current Jux favorite, Dhear. Before then, David hosted an art workshop with the children of South Central, Los Angeles with aims to complete a 40 foot wall surrounding their playground at A Place Called Home (APCH).

Our friends at Juxtapoz Latin America just passed along information about a show we wished we were checking in person out next week, with one of our current favorites Smithe and Dhear opening a show, La Llegada de Apophs, at FIFTY24MX Gallery in Mexico City. Smithe, you may remember, was in the magazine a few months back, and Dhear has been on our radar with some outstanding street works that have popped up in recent months.

As we are preparing an extensive feature in the magazine on Mexican artist, Saner, we asked him to send some images of his and others work in a new show in Elche, Alicante, Spain, "Mexico Street Art." Saner, Dhear, Seher, and Sego are all in the show in Spain.

Montana Gallery Barcelona has had some stand-out shows over the past year, one of them being the exhibition by Mexico's SANER, DHEAR, and NEUZZ. As the three artists descended upon Barcelona, Montana captured a short documentary. Watch the video after the jump . . .
