Castillo and his team used standard pencil and red pencil. The mural is protected by several layers of acrylic, an acrylic resin.

“The mural was made with the aim of innovating with an unusual work of art and with the purpose of promoting art in a post-conflict zone such as the north of the Cauca Valley in Colombia and giving our work to know,” said Castillo in your application materials. In addition to being an artist, Castillo is a tattoo artist and art teacher. During the 48 days of making the mural, several of Castillo’s students helped with the mural. At the end of the elaboration of the mural, the whole community was involved.
