Born and raised in Mexico City, Julio Pastor is a proud pedestrian of his native city. He completed a BA in Fine Arts at UNAM. In 2008, he moved to the Netherlands where he completed his MFA, specializing in the Urban Landscape. After seven years, he returned to Mexico and turned the focus of his art production to the city that he roams every day. His art production is thoroughly inspired on what he encounters during his everyday walks, but also by a great deal of reading on topics related to architecture and urbanism. When not working at his art practice, Julio can be found teaching undergraduate drawing courses in the architecture department at the Universidad Iberoamericana, or enjoying the city with his wife and two children.

He is street smart with a great knowledge of the different areas in town. He has a great passion for culture, history, art, architecture, and food and he hopes to answer questions and enhance the experience of Mexico City for visitors.
For Santiago, the architecture of "Centro Histórico" was the first thing that captured his attention. As a kid he would go there with his grandmother every weekend and visit a new building or museum every time. It quickly became a hobby to do the same thing all over the city. In no time, he had finished his degree in architecture, with an emphasis on history, and decided to turn his hobby into a career. Since then has enjoyed getting to know new people everyday and passing on the passion he feel for his native Mexico City.
