TAG Heuer - "Art Provocateur"

A hip artsy crowd gathered at Condesa, Mexico City’s trendy neighbourhood and home of established and up and coming artists to join an event hosted by TAG Heuer, the Swiss avant garde watchmaker. The American street artist Alec Monopoly transformed an art space into his workshop. The guests got a closer look into his creative process. Alec was putting finishing touches to a canvas in tribute to the Mexican solidarity and strength after the devastating earthquake of September 2017.
