Residencia Gorila TAP Tulum Art Project

Magical ecosystems and starry nights all artists gave a big sense of creation and unity between arts and locals. All over Pueblo until the beach, forgotten and hidden walls now come alive replacing gray abandoned lots, private houses, shops, the City Hall and sacred places such as Cancha Maya into a colorful explosion of shades that exhibit Mayan prevailing culture.
