It's the weekend and time to take it easy. Perhaps you might like to have a little Spanish siesta in the afternoon just like that created by the Catalan Art Nouveau painter Ramon Casas.

Or maybe you will gather a group of family and friends to enjoy a picnic just like in a Spanish Picnic as portrayed by J Ruiz.

But what I would like you to squeeze in between all your relaxing is a quick glance at Ten artists who are shaping the future of Mexico City's Art Scene.

My favourite is Ana Segovia with an example of his work Huapango Torero painted in 2019 shown below.

And if you can't go away for the weekend why don't you sit back and pretend you are in Mexico City.
