Graffiti artists repaint entire neighborhood to create giant rainbow mural

Radiant colors can transform the appearance of a neighborhood significantly, and this tiny village in Mexico is definitely a sight that dazzles the eye and cheers everyone up.

   More than 200 houses in Barrio de Palmitas in Pachuca were painted in intense colors, transforming the entire neighborhood into a beautiful rainbow community. Youth organization Germen Crew teamed up with the Mexican government to repaint around 20,000 square metres of wall to form a single rainbow mural that spans the barrio.

   According to Street Art News, 452 families (around 1808 people) said they were positively affected by the beautification, and youth violence has been reduced. Check out the video about the project, embedded below:
