Colectivo Madroño was founded in 2004 as a project dedicated to graffiti murals in the city of Chihuahua, Mexico. Its members are young men devoted to anthropology, graphic design, architecture, and psychology. The group has collaborated on different independent projects with various artists, nationally and internationally. For seven years, the collective has worked on the development of several murals in communities in the municipality of Chihuahua, integrating young people of these colonies and promoting themes of belonging in the community. Through the development of community murals, the members are community leaders that are dedicated to promoting citizen participation in the community and the practice of securities by youth, reflecting that theme on large canvases offered by the city through their fences and walls.
