Argentina has got a very important community of street artists and graffiti artists. Many are internationally renowned like Martin Ron, Milu Correch, Ever and Jaz. Buenos Aires, the capital city, attracts both local and international street artists due to it’s abundance of abandoned buildings and grey walls. There are nearly no restrictions on where artists can paint and there’s no need to obtain any kind of authorisation from the local authority. All you need is the consent of the property owner making it the perfect playground for urban artists.

In the last few years, Buenos Aires has developed a reputation for being one of the street art capital cities of the world. It is not surprising that Argentina is the birth place of some of the most creative urban artists worldwide. Today we’re presenting you 20 Argentinian street artists you absolutely need to know about. If you think we’ve missed anyone please let us know.

Caro Pepe

Caro Pepe is an Argentinian artist whose work has focused on the exploration of the inner world. She has developed a character suspended in the absence of backgrounds. “I try to portray emotions” she explains and swings between naive and provocative motifs. Her works are a constant balance of this duality. To the question “Why only one eye?” she answers that as subjective individuals, we’ve got a partial view on reality and from that “misperception” we define our worlds.

ICE

Once a student of fine arts and graphic design, Ice’s murals were initially influenced by hip-hop style graffiti. In the 1990’s when letter based graffiti first began to hit the streets in Buenos Aires, he developed a penchant for aerosol while remaining independent from the crews that began to form as part of the movement.

Inspired by the breadth of possibilities offered by muralism, Ice’s artwork has gravitated towards a wide range of figurative subjects. With flawless technique, Ice uses latex paint and aerosol to conjure up portraits of familiar faces and whimsical landscapes, lifelike bugs and animals, and his notorious mushrooms, which have popped up throughout Buenos Aires as a signature image of the artist.

One thought on “Argentina, 20 Street Artists not to be missed”

  1. Interesting blogpost,(again:)! Milu Correch and Ron are my absolute favorites. I have in Buenos Aires a few times the last years… Pol Corona is indeed a legend in Barracas (I spend a half day in this Barrio just to discover street art), I have to add: his works are his recognizable bicycles (with big wheels) that you find everywhere in Barracas. Petroni looks cool and very abstract, maybe I saw a few works in Almirante Brown barrio,. Did you ever heard about silvia spelzini? Cheers Stef
