A group of street artists called the Germen Crew collaborated with the Mexican government to paint a neighborhood in the district of Palmitas in Pachuca. After 20,000 square meters of walls were painted, the 209 homes are a rainbow of color!
On top of beautifying the neighborhood, the project has been a tool of social transformation as during the process, the violence amongst younger people has been entirely eradicated and several jobs created.
The houses were a jumble of individual muted pastels before, in need of a unifying factor. They were first covered in white primer, then the rainbow was unleashed! You can see a sequence of pictures illustrating the project at Street Art News. -via Daily of the Day
