Puerto Vallarta’s Downtown has a new artistic landmark, it is a wall painting in the corner of Abasolo and Juárez street.

This new mural is one of the many pieces that can be seen in this street, and is also part of a project which main purpose is the creation of a cultural corridor that extends to different areas of our destination.

The artist behind this work is Misael Iván López Martínez, from Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, who for nine years has been living in Vallarta · Nayarit.

Even though, he said his piece has no title, the main topics are life and death as seen by the Mexican culture. Its most representative elements are a catrina face, butterflies, flowers, the Aztec symbol Nahui-Ollin (that represents the center of the universe), corn (as part of the life that feeds the Mexicans) and God Pakal (in his transition to death).

Concluded in four weeks, this wall painting is 15 meters long with one side measuring six meters and the other one with four meters of height.

The opening ceremony was led by Marina de los Santos, director of Instituto Vallartense de Cultura amongAriel Grunwald, developer of The Colonial (active sponsor during the realization of this artwork) and also present were Claudio Leone, general director of Domus Fine Real Estate; Paulo Rojo, director of aA arquitectos Asociados del Pacífico and Cheko Pérez, director of DECO Designers, who are part of  The Colonial.

“Without doubt, Vallarta Lifestyles is the best positioned Magazine in the region. Its solid presence keeps a strong and always fresh vision about the destination, as well as activities. Besides, I consider it a great intellectual contribution for the well written articles that are in each issue.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles, from its inception has been a quality reference. In some way, it has managed to consolidate the destination because all our restaurants where there and we communicate as an exchange platform. The benefit, besides advertisement and recommendation, is that this publication is a solid copy of Puerto Vallarta’s evolution. If you pick up an old issue, immediately you’ll recall precious memories.”

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”
