About the tour

Buenos Aires is one of the best places to see Street Art in South America. Located in the residential neighborhood of Colegiales, this market, built in the 1920s originally sold fruit and vegetables. It occupies an entire block and is surrounded by amazing murals. In this tour you will see the work of Argentine and international artists and you will learn about graffitis, stencils, paste-ups, and murals. I will share with you the stories behind the different pieces as well as the techniques, styles and motivations. Buenos Aires is a huge city, and this is just one of the many neighborhoods covered with street art! Join me as we discover what´s behind these walls! Review by Jean (Heygo voyager) “Food for thought here. Generally had regarded 'street art' as just daubs of colour, but Grace's interpretations, giving the reason, explanation and story behind each one has given me anew perspective. So many thanks to Grace. She has opened my eyes! Well done to her!”
