“This is a personal project in one of the most amazing colonial cities in Mexico, Guanajuato. Featuring Day of the dead”
The day of the dead, a holiday celebrated in Mexico featuring some of the most iconic characters, the Catrin and Catrina. Husband and wife, forever together and celebrating on a day in mexico titled “dia de los muertos or dia de muertos”. Together with a team, this amazing altar in the historic downtown center of Guanajuato was erected. The altar was honoring that of Diego Riviera and m any of the icons and details that he loved. Day of the dead in Mexico is a beautiful holiday as they celebrate the magic of remembering those from the past. Death is a party in Mexico.
This project was one of my first ever personal projects that was completed with the help of more than 15 awesome people in the main downtown in front of a historic chapel in central Guanajuato city. MANY special thanks to the people at Casa Del Rector for your help.
