Graffiti

One of the things on my Buenos Aires Bucket List was a graffiti tour. There were many different options, but the tour I went on was a walking/bus tour around a few different neighborhoods all of which are close to where I live. It was really interesting to learn about the history of graffiti in Buenos Aires, as well as learn about all the different artists and their styles. Of course, I took a million pictures for your viewing pleasure-

In all of this artist’s pieces he never draws the eyes

Afterwards, they took us to this bar that many artists were invited to “decorate” and every wall in this place is completely covered. There is a gallery upstairs, and some artists also sell their pieces in a back room. There was this really awesome piece I’m going to have to go back and get!! I didn’t have enough money with me at the time…

Chao for now!!
