Guadalajara, better known as La Perla Tapatía, is one of the most important cultural and artistic epicenters in Mexico. This megalopolis with provincial soul is endearing and complex in all its nuances as are its locals, referred to as “tapatíos”. Its a taste of authentic Mexican culture, and, of course, the best tequila you’ll ever have. This city will never cease to surprise locals nor visitors.

Impactful Wall Print
Two beautiful wall prints showcasing the vibrant colors of Guadalajara.
One is an aerial photo taken as the sun sets over one of the city's prominent neighborhoods, captured by local drone photographer Pablo A. Arias Cid. The other is a film photo taken from inside the Guadalajara Cathedral, captured by photographer Ricardo Loaiza.

It is an impactful contribution and collaboration between you and the local community.
