Buenos Aires Street Art

The streets of Buenos Aires contain a world class art gallery. Porteños, as well as local government officials, are customarily in favor of large murals.  With an abundant supply of high rises and industrial areas, it is not difficult for an artist to find a canvas. Building owners even contact prominent street artists in order to add some color to their walls. Historically, graffiti spiked around the 1983 transition to democracy, and then again, during the 2001 financial crises.
