Just this past week, Mexico City-based Saner was in Oaxaca for the 2012 edition of the Guelaguetza, where he painted a few murals that, as our Juxtapoz Latin America colleagues noted, looked beautiful along with the landscape of Oaxaca. As Wikipedia is teaching us, Guelaguetza is an annual cultural event in Mexico that takes place in the city of Oaxaca, centering on traditional dancing in costume in groups, and includes parades complete with indigenous walking bands, native food, and statewide artisanal crafts such as prehispanic-style textiles.

Saner sent over some process and completed photos of a mural he painted in Monterrey, México for the Callegenera Festival. The murals concept was based around the current Mexico presidential elections. Corruption and transparency have been a major problem, as well as bribes and bought votes. Saner spoke about this particular mural, “The idea was to paint people into government service, at the end we are only a small part of the banquet.”

Two of our favorite street artists who have both been featured in our printed magazine, Aryz and Saner, collaborated on a new wall in the streets of Mexico City. Aryz was visiting Mexico for the All City Canvas Project and due to equipment problems was unable to finish a massive mural he was working on. The combination of styles compliment each other well on this particular wall.

Mexico City-based fine artist and muralist, Saner, is set to open a new body of work, Corazón Sangrante (Bleeding Heart), at San Francisco's FIFTY24SF Gallery on March 16, 2012. With unique use of Mexican folklore, mysticism, masks, customs, and skulls, Saner has, documented in an issue of Juxtapoz, a "free and unpretentious spirit (that) allows him to express a new Mexican vision."
