Favio Martinez is a painter / street artist currently working in Mexico City. He earned his B.F.A from the Universidad Michoacana de S.N. Hidalgo in 2008.
Curiot creates vibrant mythical beasts blending human and animal forms, which allude to Mexican handcrafts and folk art.
The works are highly detailed, rich in color, symbolist and mystic. Inspired from Pre-Hispanic cultures, nature and urban contemporaneity, the artist explores the relationship between man and nature.
He gave the little building of the waterwork supply of Aminona a new face, transforming it with delicate shades of pink and violet into a little Mexican Aztec temple.
