Banner Catrín Jacobo Roa


The mural 'Catrín', located in Mérida, Yucatán, is a monumental work covering 100 square meters and offers a vivid homage to Mexico's rich cultural heritage. Created in 2018, this mural blends traditional elements with a contemporary and irreverent approach, characteristic of renowned artist Roa's style.

The piece stands out for its bold representation of iconic figures from Mexican folklore, reinterpreted with a modern twist. The skulls, the Catrín, the Mezcal, and the vibrant colors of the Day of the Dead festivities are intertwined with urban iconography and graffiti, reflecting the coexistence of the past and present in Mexican culture.

Through this work, Roa manages to provoke a reflection on Mexican identity and traditions, challenging the viewer with his distinctive style that mixes the historical with the contemporary, the sacred with the profane. 'Catrín' is not only a celebration of Mexican culture but also a visual statement of its evolution and relevance in today's world.
