Opening Thursday September 6th at Londonewcastle Project Space in London, this exhibition is titled “The Talking Walls of Buenos Aires” and explores Argentina’s unique culture of urban art. The show will feature mural art and original artworks from leading Argentine artists and art collectives, together with video works and historical and contemporary photography portraying the urban landscape of Buenos Aires and seminal moments in the country’s history.
The exhibition will celebrate a form of expression rooted in activism and a desire to transform public space, and in the process challenges conventional views on what graffiti is, what street art represents, who creates it, and why.
The following artists will be taking part:
Cabaio Stencil / Chu / Corona / Defi / Ever / Fede Minuchin / Gonzalo Dobleg / Gualicho / Jaz / Malatesta / Mart / Nasa / Pastel / Pedro Perelman / Poeta / Prensa La Libertad / Pum Pum / Roma / SAM / Stencil Land / Tec / Tester / Zumi
This will be a unique opportunity to view an incredible body of work from some truly exceptional artists, and for anyone living in or around London it is not to be missed! We look forward to seeing you there….

Opening night: Thursday September 6th from 6pm-10pm

“White Walls Say Nothing”
We are just weeks away from launching a kickstarter fundraising campaign for a feature length documentary we are producing on the history of urban art in Buenos Aires.
We have always felt that Buenos Aires is special. There are few cities in the world which share Buenos Aires’s tolerance and respect for public expression. We have spent years exploring the roots of urban art, the complex role it plays in city life, and the stories of the artists who have created it.
One of the key aims of our project has been to share these stories with the world, and we’re hoping that our documentary can help achieve this. The next step for us it to secure enough funding to complete filming. We’ll have a trailer to share with you very shortly, meanwhile we have some stills from the documentary to share, and you can ready more about the project here.
