Vinyl painting on the history of the country

Twitter account Balam RR denounced on January 6 the appearance of the façade of the well-known Palacio de Correos, architectural symbol of the Porfiriato and which serves as the headquarters of the country’s Post offices.

The unfortunate appearance of the facade shows two huge stripes that completely cover their fronts with paint in brown tones, giving an inappropriate appearance to the quarry, which is used in these buildings to show off its natural grain.

The work at the time was intervened by Cecilia Giménez and the disaster it caused turned the painting into a tourist magnet due to the popularity it reached on social networks.
