Mexico City decorated for Day of the Dead festivities

The 25 giant skulls are part of an exhibition called “Mexicraneos”, an urban art project which enhances Mexican culture during one of the most important celebrations in the country.

“I am impressed with the skulls, with the Catrinas, with all the colours you can see in Reforma Avenue. We are now in front of the Angel of Independence here in Mexico City and the truth I am surprised with how colourful the celebration and the event is,” Venezuelan tourist Eliot Linares told Reuters.

The skulls were painted through traditional and modern techniques by emerging and established artists aiming to bring art closer to the people. These works will be exhibited until November 8.
