Villa Urquiza Art District Project was the idea of Matt Fox-Tucker and is being organized by Buenos Aires Street Art and has been made possible with the help from GPC Comunal No 12, Buenos Aires City Government and Leonardo Caruso. Guillermo Ron and Jiant have also been helping Martin Ron with his mural. When the artwork is finished it will help convert this area of Villa Urquiza into one of the best locations to see street art in Buenos Aires.
