Grand Chamaco: Premio CDMX
design / Grand Chamaco / 31.8.17
Inspired in the Mesoamerican god Tláloc, Grand Chamaco created an statuette award for the best ideas in Mexico City. Premios Ciudad de México (Mexico City Awards) is a civil initiative who recognizes citizen, cultural, technology and entertainment projects that have a positive impact in Mexico City. This year they celebrate their second edition and for the second year in a row, Grand Chamaco have collaborated with the statuette design.
The enigmatic mexican designer with his distinctive style have reinterpreted, in his own way, Diego Rivera’s mural Agua, Origen de la Vida (Water, Source of Life) that decorates the Cárcamo de Dolores (Sump of Dolores) in the Second Section of Chapultepec Park, where the Mexico City Awards are going to take place. The statuette itself is inspired in Tlaloc, supreme god of the rain, also by extension a god of earthly fertility and of water, that Grand Chamaco modeled and colored, first selecting a wide and flashy chromatic range, then pure and elegant colors like white and gold.
