In June of this year while visiting Iguazu Falls in Misiones Province in Northern Argentina, I decided to do a side-trip to a recommended site in the region. This ended up being a very informative and enjoyable day trip which I am now finally posting about.

Learning about prominent street artists and their works in Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires is a paradise for street art enthusiasts and artists alike. One of the reasons is that unlike most large world cities it has an open and relatively unrestricted approach to urban art. This means that abandoned and derelict as well as occupied buildings can be used as art spaces as long as owners give their permission.
On a recent long weekend visit to Buenos Aires I decided to join a guided street art tour instead of seeking out murals and street art on my own, as I usually do. There are several walking tours available, but I decided to go with Graffitimundo, a non-profit organisation directly involved in supporting the urban arts scene in the city.

Rustic ‘Artitecture’ – San Telmo District, Buenos Aires, March 2015.
I arrived in South America 3 weeks ago and got these shots with my Film SLR and then as usual I had to wait for them to be developed. I might take most of my future shots with my Digital SLR as it has become increasingly difficult (and expensive) to get film processed, no matter where you are in the world. – Jean-Jacques
