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.
Right now Raquel Del Castillo is the editor-in-chief of Menú (the food issue) at El Universal newspaper and writer at 7 Caníbales. She has been a food journalist since 2000, writing for publications such as Forbes online, Munchies (Vice Mexico), chilango.com, and the national newspaper Milenio. She studied culinary arts and Communication at university. Now she mixes this knowledge of cooking and writing in her everyday work. She loves teaching recipes and leading tours to the local markets of Mexico City. She thinks that the best way to know the flavors of Mexico is to walk through these public places and go to the restaurants to see how chefs prepare the ingredients for the numerous traditional Mexican recipes, some of them published in her three recipe books.
Gustavo spends more hours and days per week in the historic center than in any other place, either taking photos, planning and producing cultural activities or just walking around, searching for the best place to relax and have a drink. With an academic formation in the Arts (BFA and MFA, UNAM) he has been able to develop a creative and particular approach to the city. In addition, his passions include music, food and drink and are creative outlets for alternative research and experimentation. Gustavo plays frequently as a DJ in various venues all over Mexico City, and as a food & drink lover, he is currently involved in the creation of his own locally crafted gin brand.
