Street artists paint wonderwall in La Plata, Buenos Aires

Street artists finished painting an incredible wall in La Plata last night that features scenes from stories by the well-known Argentine writer and poet Maria Elena Walsh. The monster wall is 85 metres long x 5 metres high. It took the artists three days to complete and surrounds a local children’s activity centre in the Los Hornos neighbourhood.
