After the 2001 crash, the sound of the cacerolazo was accompanied by an audibly quieter but visually in-your-face explosion of stencil art. With anger and frustration searching for an outlet, satirical and political statements poured forth from pots and sprayed themselves on streets and walls in Buenos Aires.
Workshops in stencil art and cycle tours of painted barrios are just some of the ways you can tap into the urban art scene today in Buenos Aires during downtime from Tango. Graffitimundo, a collective of artists, designers and afficionados joined through friendship, give you looking glass to climb through. If you’re going through the looking glass to get to tango in Baires, this glass will transport you to another side of the reflection.
