Spaik Goes Seaside in Quintana Roo

Mexican Street Artist Spaik continues to combine his love of urban art with the historic mural art of his country, mixing folk elements and cultural symbols to tell stories both real and imagined. Here he is combining the indigenous maritime life with references to the traditions of the region, as shown through a fluorescent prism of the modern global age. Last month in Quintana Roo on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, Spaik created this mural for a festival celebrating Caribbean culture, Festival de Cultura del Caribe or FECUCA.
