There is no shortage of artists in this world that are painting on the streets, on walls and on buildings. For me, some of them stand out for their determination, their flawless skills, their incredible work ethic and for their artistic evolution. One of these such artists is DOES who is based in the Netherlands and whose origins are entrenched in graffiti and a key member of the Ironlak family. This visual artist travels around the world and these days seems to be playing around with more abstract shapes and ideas whilst still subliminally incorporating graffiti.
Recently, he was invited to Mexico to be part of the inaugural Chromatica Festival where he painted the side of a building measuring fifteen metres by eight metres in the historical centre of Mexico City. Bathed in the sun, he completed the mural within a week to the delight of the locals – all photos supplied by the artist.
