Qué harás

Hello my name is Christian Aguilera i’m a Mexican contemporary artist. For this Airbnb experience I’d like to share a unique painting technique I developed using Grana cochinilla. Grana cochinilla is a natural pigment used to create red and violet dyes. For centuries it remained one of the most valuable substances in the world since the colors it produces were unknown outside of Mexico. During the last couple of years I’ve been using Grana cochinilla to paint landscapes of Mexico City, they are a meditation on the duality of our city which is both ancient and modern.

In this Airbnb experience I would teach the participants about the history of the material and how to use it. After the explanation I will provide paper to teach the participants how to create different hues using a variety of ingredients like lemon and ashes. Then I will provide a unique hand-drawn pencil sketch of one of Mexico city’s iconic buildings and teach the participants how to color it it using Grana cochinilla. The experience will include traditional snacks and a guide designed by me to discover an authentic side of Mexico City!

I believe this experience could be a great starting point for visitors to familiarize themselves with the rich architectural heritage of Mexico City, get in touch with the local art scene and discover an ancient painting technique they most likely won't learn anywhere else
