Big Little Pieces of Street Art in Buenos Aires

Posted on November 18, 2015 by Daniela Pafundi in ARTS

The colorful and chaotic walls of Buenos Aires make the city a dynamic, constantly curated gallery.  Eclectic and ever moving, a viewer can have the sensation of being transported from Paris to San Paolo in a single block.  Normative definitions of public and private space are challenged, as is the iconic status that museum paintings hold.  Buenos Aires street art is ephemeral, the walls are an ever-changing canvas of a city constantly expressing itself in new ways.

  1. OH. I just noticed. The piece that’s attributed to just Mart is a collaboration between Mart and Pol Corona, whose work is within the wheels of Mart’s bike.

  2. Thanks for showing part of the amazing walls in Buenos Aires. Let me add that the chain of hands at Ghelco is by Gaia, who worked together with Nanook on the factory’s façade.
