    Tlaloc, from Mexico, by Ruben

    Pay wave

    Do you see a set of orange painted apartments right next to a turquoise painted school? The school is known as a Madrassa. Stay here while I tell you about it.

    On the side wall of the school on the right we'll meet the founder of IPAF Mexico and Canada, Ruben Carrasco. For his contribution to the festival, Ruben looked back to his roots to deliver something that truly represented himself as an artist while simultaneously resonating with the local Capetonian context in which the art finds itself. His piece depicts the Tlaloc, an ancient object of worship in Mexico. In the Aztec religion the Tlaloc was said to be the deliverer of rain, fertility and water. This symbol is associated with giving life and sustenance.

    Let's continue now. Keep going along this road and then take your first left. Keep walking while I tell you more about Ruben and IPAF.

    By partnering with festivals in Mexico and Canada, we were able to maximise the exposure and impact of IPAF Cape Town. Through these widespread ties and collaborations, we are able to unify our joint mission to bring colour to the world one mural at a time.

    If you're still at Ruben's Tlaloc, continue in the same direction, turn left at the next corner and keep going.
