Urban art, street art, offers us a completely democratic fully colourful gallery under the open sky..
We will walk to see some impressive murals of Buenos Aires, learn about the artists behind them and then, inspired, we will leave our own artistic intervention on the walls of Buenos Aires, an attempt at permanence in an impermanent arena of contemporary art.
What we’ll do
It will be a very special graffiti workshop, under the open sky, during which you will make your own creative mark in Buenos Aires. First, we will find ourselves in an area of Buenos Aires where urban art is in full splendor. We will learn about its context in Argentina, some of its past and present and then teach the fundamental techniques and skills of graffiti, in order to make out own piece of Urban Art on a wall in the streets of Buenos Aires.
After a little sketching, thinking and having fun, we will go to a specially prepared section of the graffiti wall of the park, where we will shake the cans and begin to spray, giving life to our own designs and putting into practice the skills learned.
Of course, we're going to share some Argentine mates while we do this, just like local argentine artists do.
