Portales Ilustrados

Since almost 3 years ago I thought about create a project in which I can immortalize all the beautiful doorways I see in Mexico City, where I live. Specially in neighborhoods like Colonia Roma where every step you walk, you can find all kind of styles of ironwork or concrete ornaments embellishing and glamourizing house entrances and portals. So this project is meant to pay tribute to all that beauty and hard work of the mexican ironworkers, carpenters, construction workers, arquitects, etc. My goal is not only to illustrate the facade but to create a seamless pattern inspired on the ironwork.
