Artist's description:

Original artwork of Mexico City painted on canvas and stretched on double wooden bars.

I have visited the capital of Mexico so many times that I have stopped counting it. The city has the biggest airport and therefore was always my entry to this vast country. I created this painting of the capital along with another much larger painting for an exhibition at the Mexican Consulate General in Germany (see photo.)


Detailed description of the painting:

In the center we can see the Cathedral Metropoolitana and the Monument of the nine Heros. Above it towers the Chapultepec Castle with the Mexican flag and the coat of arms of the city. A small grasshopper sits on top of the castle, suggesting the origin of the castle’s name. “Chapultepec” comes from the Toltec language which means “grasshopper hill.”

On the left side of the painting the Column of Independence towers over the Frida Kahlo House, who is probably the most famous figure of the city if not even of the entire country.

On the right side we can see the “Casa de los Azulejos” (House of tiles) and the university which was founded in 1553 and is one of the largest and oldest universities of the Americas. The UNESCO declared the building a World Heritage Site in 2007.
