• There’s just one thing we should warn you about: on the street, pieces are often here today and gone tomorrow. Some walls get painted over by the municipal government; others are simply overhauled by the artists themselves. Just recently, the Sanez mural outside Espacio Zapata (left) was painted over with an image of social realist painter David Alfaro Siqueiros holding the head of President Pena Nieto (right). Transient, dynamic, and subversive, there’s always something new to see on the Oaxacan street art scene.
