On Monday I joined my friend Matt of Buenos Aires Street Art to check out the newest murals in town by some very talented artists. The train ride there and back was uncomfortable, hot, and packed, but it was all worth it when we were able to see the newest Buenos Aires street art.Read More »
Painting graffiti in Buenos Aires is legal.
This may sound crazy to many of my readers, but it’s true. You are free to paint as you like, as long as you aren’t painting on private property without permission, or on public buildings.Read More »
Blu isn’t based in Buenos Aires, but he has created what could be argued to be the most important mural in the entire city.
Blu’s contribution to the Buenos Aires street art scene is undeniable. A couple times I’ve talked about my passion for street art, and they have brought up this piece. It’s what great street art does: it makes you think, but at the same time you are awed by the artistic ingenuity.Read More »
The Buenos Aires street art scene has two brand new incredible pieces by one of the world’s most famous artists, Roa. Roa, from Ghent, Belgium, was in Buenos Aires for about a week and a half to start of 2013 in style. He’s truly one of the world’s greatest street artists, and his newest pieces did not disappoint.Read More »
Yesterday I made my splash into the Buenos Aires graffiti scene.
I’ve been admiring the art-form from afar for a while, and yesterday my friend Matt offered to bring me to the introductory class in graffiti after his tour. The class was led by a Buenos Aires street art legend, Pelado.Read More »
Jaz is one of the biggest artists on the Buenos Aires street art scene. Some of his most popular works are a series of animals wrestling. They are symmetrical the majority of the time, and signify soccer hooligans. I personally like the premise, and am excited whenever I find a new piece of his work around town.Read More »
I’ve had the good fortune of being introduced to some of the amazing street artists in Buenos Aires. Yesterday I was told by my friend Matt, of Buenos Aires Street Art, that there’d be some artists painting in what’s going to be the graphic design district. I took a particular liking to the piece that was painted by Ice, a local artist whose work I had seen around town, without knowing it was him. It was a pleasure to meet him.Read More »
Roa is one of the world’s most famous street artists. He’s from Ghent, Belgium, and paints large scale scavenger creatures. His work is predominantly in black and white, and has a dark, morbid feel to it. He says that he enjoys painting local scavengers, and finds their role in the circle of life to be beautiful and intriguing. I’m a big fan. I’ll let you decide what you think.Read More »
Jimmy C is one of my favourite artist in the world. This guy makes street art that is beyond belief. He has a unique way of painting that I would call “street impressionism.” With the use of small dots, and dripping paint he makes vividly colourful portraits. Someday I want a piece of his work on my wall. Until that day, I’ll have to go to the streets to admire his work.Read More »
I went to an all girl graffiti gathering on Saturday. I was on the Buenos Aires Street Art Tour when Matt, the guide/owner invited me. The event happened to be in a questionable part of town. It wasn’t the ‘hood, but it wasn’t Recoleta either.Read More »
