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.

“We started advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles because we really liked the quality. Actually, it is still the best magazine of Puerto Vallarta, because of its spectacular articles and photos. Thanks to its distribution points at famous hotels, it is the ideal publication to reach the clients we are looking for.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles was the first reliable magazine that emerged in our destination. In fact, up to date is the only publication that we have in Puerto Vallarta that you can be proud of, because if you give it to someone, you know that person will enjoy watching the photos and reading the articles in each of its pages. I consider, that it is the only magazine that prevails in Vallarta · Nayarit as an icon of this genre”.
