Argentinian Street Artist
Street Art in Argentina:
“As in any Latin American country, the scene is pretty big and there is a huge amount of muralists with brushes and rollers as main weapons. Painting walls in the street is not illegal and the citizens are usually very fond of wallpainting, so the situation provides the perfect place to experiment big walls in the public space. Themes like popular idols, pagan saints, football teams, political phrases are popular in Argentina. In Argentina there are also a lot of women painting.”
“I think I’m attracted to the large scale murals because of their potential as huge imposed images. My ideal is a city with huge images that don’t sell anything. I also paint canvas and drawings.”
