Held in downtown Coachella’s historic Pueblo Viejo, the […]

The transparency of the image and the fact that the wall wasn’t cleaned or buffed before […]

By creating and installing artworks and mirror surfaces around four different buildings, the Italian-Argentinian art duo played with simple optical illusions that were created. The artists got their inspiration […]
