May I start by saying that photographing San Miguel de Allende’s new Urban Art Gallery in a highway underpass is best not done during Friday morning rush-hour traffic.

Not a one does justice to the ten murals that have been created since Monday on the Libramiento underpass leading into Colonia San Antonio (just south of Hospital H+).
You really have to see them up close — and even from across the street — to appreciate what these artists put into their work.
Here are the ten, completed in just four days, some in even less time:
