ABOUT MEXICAN UTOPIA
A transcendental part of Mexico is our identity. A euphoric state that includes patriotism, history, culture, and faith with a devotion as passionate when there is a victory for our country's soccer team.
Today, Mexico has been losing that passion and pride. Though we are a complex society, we are also a multicultural country which should be respected and which should also flourish.
This project seeks to generate social awareness with younger generations so that they can fall in love with the country again.
Dimensions: 11 x 18 inches.
