i spent 22 days in the police painting my latest mural, on a place called "Paso de la vaca" (Cow path) very dangerous zone in central San José Costa Rica, so the police started a new quarter here a year ago.

Must be nice to paint on clean, flat surfaces. Some of your other murals were done on crumbling walls, I'm guessing power washing a day or two before working, is a must.

(Updated ) Munguia responds:

It´s always nice paint no matter the wall, I paint on any surface, I am not elitist, not classist, I am tolerant with all means. and yes a big washing truck clean the place when we started and then 10 days later again, and it need to do like every 15 days. Thanks for comment :)

Damn, it's really interesting to see this bright colourful cheery mural in contrast with the almost broken and rundown surroundings. Really interesting stuff. Nice work!

Damn, the world in that mural looks so much better than the grim reality surrounding it. Thank you for the effort.

It looks great. But painting the sidewalk would be nice, too. I do not know... green?. Hmm... No, maybe it's too much.
