The vibrant Mexican culture that permeates the entire country, has produced a number of world-renowned artists that have captured the world within the last century. Mexico has always had a flourishing art scene, but in recent years, with increased tourism to Mexico and the growth of its capital city—Mexico City—Mexico has attracted more attention with its striking architecture projects, unique and experimental art, and distinguished fashion designs.
Here are some Mexican art blogs and online sites that showcase the best of Mexican art and Mexican culture.
Founded by photographer Fabiola Zamora and her best friend Danae Salazar, Revista 192 is Mexico’s coolest indie magazine. If you want to learn about Mexico’s coolest designers, fashion events, art exhibits and more—the online site has a tab for fashion, beauty, and art—not to mention their #Directorio192 which is an online directory with reviews of Mexico City’s best restaurants and boutiques. You can sign up for a print subscription or view all of their content online.
Jenaro de Rosenzweig and Alejandro Revilla’s love of street art brought them together to create this insanely popular art society in Mexico City. This company is dedicated to promoting street art and Mexican culture by offering private and public tours around the city to view the art, and—most importantly—gathering money to secure commissions for artist to create new and carefully curated street art around Mexico City. Street Art Chilango’s website offers the ability to book tours and learn about upcoming events (like live music in front of murals!). If you can’t visit Mexico City, you can view all of its amazing street art through their Mexican art blog—Street Art Chilango’s Instagram.
Founded in 2013, Terremoto is an online blog which also offers a quarterly printed magazine. Founded by Dorothee Dupuis, a feminist seeking to question power structures and ignite international dialogue about Mexico and the border states of the United States. The blog section of Terremoto’s website features contemporary art shows around the Latin American continent, while the review section offers detailed reviews about these exhibits and shows. The Marginilia section on the site is an image-based section which showcases different artist’s art spaces and projects they’re working on. The artist’s identity is kept secret and at the end of the month their identity is revealed along with text that conceptualizes their art.
Artsy is an international art blog that features galleries, artist, and artwork from around the world. If you are an art lover, museum-goer, art collector, or art student—you have probably visited this website. Arsty has a section dedicated to each country, so if you want to view the best Mexican art and Mexico’s most prolific or up-and-coming artists, Artsy is the place to look. Arsty offers the chance to not only view specific Mexican art but also gives information to contact the artist or gallery if you want to purchase artwork.
