Street Art

Saner in Cali, Colombia

November 26, 2012

Leading Mexican contemporary artist, and a favorite here at Juxtapoz, Saner was recently in Cali, Colombia for a mural festival curated by Fundiberarte and Street Skills Cali. The festival was the city's first International Biennial Mural Exhibition, a week long event that brought in over 58 artists from around the world.

As Saner told us about his particular piece, "My topic for the mural was the education, the name being 'Tree of Wisdom.' When we read a book, we find a tree and this tree give us fruits of knowledge that we can eat and feed the soul and spirit. An educated population is a grouo of people prepared to survive and tolerate different ways of thinking about life."
