IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS THE SOUTHERN ‘PORTEÑO’ NEIGHBORHOOD HAS BEEN FILLED WITH AMAZING STREET ART THAT SURPRISES FOR ITS QUALITY (AND FOR ITS DIMENSIONS) / ARGENTINE AND EUROPEAN ARTISTS / WHAT’S THE “COLOR BA” INITIATIVE ALL ABOUT?
One of the most interesting news is that the neighborhood seems to be increasingly intervened. In building facades, forgotten walls or local shutters, dozens of murals of many artists and groups related to, and emerging from urban art – mostly thanks to the “Color BA” movement – transform the public space into an art festival. In only two editions, this initiative managed to transform – and as they claim – beautify La Boca, legitimizing the conception that art should be within reach of all.
Three main representations of this murals boom: the imposing portrait of a girl of La Boca by the Argentine artist “El Marian” located at Suarez & Juan de Dios Filiberto intersection; a double median by italian “Millo” (main photo of this article) located at Benito Pérez Galdos & Caboto; and the colors of irish artist “Maserart”, in a half block intervention on Martin Rodriguez street Martín Rodríguez between Ayolas and Lamadrid.
