Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?

I have chosen this place because of its unique culture to hand paint its city. Most of the city is covered in this unique hand painted tile. People from all over the world come to this city just to buy a hand painted tile and take it back home. It is one of Mexicos oldest city and historically one of the most important due to its location and historical battlegrounds.
