Artists to paint inside Gustave Eiffel building in Buenos Aires

Street artists will be painting the interior of a famous building in Buenos Aires designed by Gustave Eiffel, the architect of the world famous Eiffel Tower in Paris. The former factory that is now Boutique nightclub was built between 1906 and 1916 with the ironwork and columns designed by Eiffel brought over from France and assembled in Buenos Aires.

From Tuesday 18th September dozens of well-known Buenos Aires street artists including Martin Ron, Dame, Ice, Lean Frizzera, Pum Pum and Sabrina Amante will be painting the walls of the huge three-storey space. The event is called ‘Wild Style’  and is being run by Argentine muralist Alfredo Segatori and forms part of a larger digital art project entitled ‘Urban Concept’.
