Italian street artist Alice Pasquini was in Buenos Aires this week for the first time and painted a beautiful mural in Coghlan. This project was organized by BA Street Art.
Dancing in the street
Alice paints scenes that represent human connection and emotion. She portrays strong, independent women as a contrast to the overly sexualized images of women that are represented in the media. After this trip she will have traveled to and painted in every continent (except Antarctica).
The wall before
Alice said she was drawn to this particular wall because of its interesting shape and textures.

Many artists use a grid system to get the scale just right, others use projections. Alice prefers to sketch her design on transparency paper. Here she holds up her sketch to the wall.
Alice tells us about the mural. “White walls don’t inspire me,” she explains. She likes this wall’s unique shape, its textures and the plants that hang down it.
The finished mural was painted in about 4 hours.
