The Leyenda of Tenochtitlan. "October 12th. 1492."

The Legend of Tenochtotilan: The Aztecs were polytheistic. Their main deity was called Huitzilopochtli, the sun god. One day, Huitzilopochtli ordered his people to build a kingdom on new lands. He instructed them to explore the eastern regions and build a city where they would see "an eagle standing on a nopal, devouring a snake, its wings spread", and so, with these indications, the Aztecs abandoned Aztlán and began their pilgrimage in search of this famous eagle. The road was long, very long, some claim that the pilgrimage would have lasted 165 years. It is estimated that it was on July 26, 1325 that the Mexicas saw the prophecy fulfilled. They saw the eagle on an islet in the middle of Lake Texcoco. The region was hostile and marshy, but the divine order being what it was, it was there that they founded what would become the capital of the immense Aztec empire, Mexico Tenochtitlan ("Tenochtitlan" means "place of tunas on the stone", tuna being the fruit of the nopal.)

Born in Cordoba, Argentina, Lucas Ninin is a promising young artist. His initiation began at the age of 12 with the artist Marta Milliani. The year 2012 marks his professional entry into the world of art with his exhibition at the "Monaco Art Gallery". A year later, he began a journey that led him to participate in various exhibitions and group projects in Brazil, Uruguay and France. In 2014 he moved to Paris and began to take an interest in street art. In his Parisian studio, he meets several street artists with whom he learns new techniques such as stencils and wooden sculpture, disciplines that will serve him to transpose his creations onto the city walls. In his graphic universe there are strong references to pre-Hispanic art from South America, mixed with contemporary artistic trends such as raw art and pop art.
