Urban Sketchers is an international non-profit organization dedicated to fostering a global community of artists who practice on-site drawings to enhance the artistic, narrative, and educational value of drawing. Connecting people from all over the world, the organization brings people in touch with their environment to illustrate drawings of their lived experiences.

Over the past eight years, Urban Sketchers Mexico has arranged meetups throughout Mexico City and the Metropolitan Area to interpret the capital through drawings. The group meets at a well-known public location, presents their community notebook, and then allows members to find their own spot to dedicate themselves to drawing for two to four hours. After the drawing period, the group reunites by sharing their notebooks, experiences, and techniques.

Pedro Ramirez Vázquez (1919-2013) is one of the most representative figures of Mexican architecture. Known as the 'Father of Mexican Modern Architecture,' his exuberant works influenced the following generation of Mexican architects to create the city we know today. Ramirez Vázquez adapted the concepts of the modern movement to suit Latin American life, leaving a legacy that (literally) continues to be drawn through the eyes of his successors. 

Below, an homage to the Mexican master by Urban Sketchers Mexico.
