Street Art of Buenos Aires

28th February 2019

Street Art of Palermo – Buenos Aires has some of the finest street art in the world. Once frowned upon, it is now actively encouraged by the government. Leafy Palermo with its trendy bars, restaurants & boutique shops is one of the best barrios to enjoy the “graffiti” of Buenos Aires. The artists use multiple techniques – brush, roller, spray cans, stencil, glued on posters. Artists are respected and there is almost no vandalism of their works. Many works are commissioned by the building owners. Here are just a few examples.

There is wonderful art in the more “gritty” barrio San Telmo as well.
