Few would recognize Armando Alanís Pulido on the streets, although he is the worldwide founder of the movement Acción Poética (Poetic Action.)

His art has physical and digital manifestations in 30 countries, the last of them being Austria, from where his fans send him photos with the phrase “without poetry, there is no city,” Poetic Action's motto, the urban movement he created.
