Unity of Opposites, curated by Coka Treviño, explores nature and how humans decide to interact with it. Inspired by alchemy, technology, and numbers, Blasto focuses on earth, the visible and tangible; Walker the invisible, immaterial and divine. By taking opposite ends of the spectrum, they create pieces that connect only by the tension within their subjects.

Blasto is interested in exploring universal concepts and landing them on symbols that can connect with people through his work on the street. He seeks to recognize, discover, and be a participant in architectural concepts of the city and any environment to establish an open dialogue with the thousands of commuters, or with the few who will discover interventions hidden for most. His work has been shown mostly in Mexico and South America. Publications of his work include Street Sketchbook Journeys / Thames & Hudson, UK & Nuevo Mundo Latin American Street Art / Gestalten, Germany.

Ernesto Walker explores chance and abstraction as a way to encode and visually translate the reality around us, looking for links between what is accidental and what becomes meaningful. His work has been shown worldwide. He is 1st place winner of the Saatchi Gallery Drawing Showdown 2011, obtained FONCA Fellowships from the Mexican National Arts Fund (2016 & 2018), among many other accolades. Since January 2011, he is a professor of the School of Art, Architecture, and Design of the Tec de Monterrey College.
