Moroccan capital of Rabat recently hosted Jidar Urban Art Festival and one of the invited artists was Saner from Mexico, known for his figurative works strongly influenced by Mexican tradition and culture.
Saner modified one of his familiar characters to fit the new environment. Using bright colors and a simple composition, he created a large portrait of a masked man serving tea while standing in the water. By adding symbolic elements to his work and uniting the distant traditions of Mexico and Morocco, the finished work undoubtedly speaks of unity and possibility for people of different cultures to get a long.
