4 out of 5 stars

Upon entering, you think you have entered a design shop, worthy of a museum of modern art; you can find silkscreen underground artists (pricey), designer toys, books, photography, art and design, and very colourful architecture.

You can find traditional CDs, cult films and all kinds of vinyl, from Lost Acapulco to the soundtrack to the 60’s film Hell's Belles. There is also a wealth of Mexican designed products such as earrings by Sandia, Bidiseño keychains, bags and market type items from Sensacional and Maka.

Behind the shop is the gallery, which is small, but the space is well used. All exhibitions are temporary and change monthly, exposing two artists each month. Among the exhibitors are Derek Yongier, Ankle Biter, Pachiclón, Megan Adamson and, of course, Clarisa Moura and Dr. Alderete the owners. All the work that is displayed is for sale.

This space seeks to express art in all its forms, so they project documentaries, hold book readings and have acoustic performances. The last to appear was Viniloversus and Perrosky. We recommend you visit their website to learn about upcoming activities and events that are constantly advertised.

Besides all this, they have courses and workshops focusing on design and even summer courses to bring children to the world of art. The elements of design in this gallery can be found even in the bathroom, which is full of stickers and stencils reminiscent of the typical 90’s rock bar. It is definitely a space that represents the country’s creative scene.
