The Triumph of Culture
The mural by Jorge González Camarena titled "The Triumph of Culture" is located right in front of the wall Saner intervened. Camarena's mural is a symbol of the University and a key element of Saner's mural.

"Evolution" by Saner
Saner's mural is titled "Evolution", because it is a change between Camarena and Saner's generation. The institution is likewise evolving and it wishes to open a dialogue with urban spaces and their residents, as a result of the wave of violence the city has suffered.

A spiritual and social evolution is needed worldwide in order to break down barriers.

Saner and Mexican folklore
By using traditional imagery from his own cultural heritage and by sometimes mixing it up with other countries' iconography, Mexican street artist, illustrator and graphic designer, Saner creates a distinctive vision of the world. His masked characters appear on walls, canvases, paper or objects, revealing the influence of Mexican customs and folklore.

Coupled with a weird sense of humor and a mysterious edge, Saner's heroes and demons are happy to coexist with the present. By imposing the images on different surfaces, Saner questions contemporary society and encourages the viewer to embrace a mindset of oneness, as opposed to otherness.
