Street art has become increasingly popular in cities worldwide and has resignified art by brining it out of the academic context and into the city for every passer-by to see. Buenos Aires of course, with it’s flourishing artistic and design community, is no exception, and it is common to find stunning visuals painted onto once forgotten walls of the different neighborhoods, which thanks to the intervention of young and cutting edge artists have recovered their appeal.
Aiming to promote the urban art scene in Buenos Aires, Graffitimundo offers off the beaten path tours of the city’s street art. Group tours, Bike tours and Private tours are available for those interested in learning more about these unique murals and the political and social context behind them. For those looking to get involved in the creative process itself they offer a great stencil workshop as well.
