Specter in Puerto Escondido, Mexico

Today New York and most of the northeast US is completely clobbered and somewhat paralyzed with snow from a giant blizzard so we thought we’d show you photos from a surf town of 26,000 residents in Mexico called Puerto Escondido where their annual Carnaval started yesterday. Brooklyn based Street Artist Specter is working in the 85 degree temperature in blasting sun to put up the occasional piece and here he is stencilling on a rectangular outcropping on the side of modernist building.

Says photographer Lauren Besser, Specter is not far from the surf in these shots from the west coast Oaxacan town. “He installed a painting on the home of local artists in La Punta where the best waves come in. The piece is a nod at traditional cultures that are often forgotten by beach-side tourists,” she says. This new one looks similar to one he did recently in Mexico City featured in a recent “Images of the Week”.
