Mexico just got a little more colourful (if that’s possible).

A youth organization recently rallied the help of an entire community to turn a boring hillside into a work of art. Germen Crew, which has been around for 13 years, joined up with local government officials in Pachuca, Mexico with the idea of turning 209 houses into a giant, eye-catching mural. To do that, the organization’s members spoke to the area’s residents, planned workshops and asked them what colours they’d like their homes to be.

Needless to say, the community was happy to accept a fresh coat of paint. Residents also saw a boost in jobs, which were created to tackle the artistic endeavour. Soon, a vibrant neighbourhood was born; here’s a before-and-after shot:

Germen Crew is known to use artwork to transform and improve public spaces with the help of communities. But it looks like this is some of their best work yet:
