The design in the barrio of Villa Crespo has been painted on the facade of a ‘polleria’ or poultry shop and it took two days to finish. It features a crying man by Corona, a whale and a brightly coloured character painted by Roma. “One passerby remarked that they thought the character Corona has painted next to the whale, resembles a mermaid but it’s a man,” said Roma. “So I guess we can call it Whale Man (el hombre de la ballena)!”

Corona explained how his collaboration with Roma came together. “The idea was to renovate the wall. Each of us has painted a character showing their upper bodies and they join together in the middle in a carnival of colours. We were working a lot with the subject of the colours, the blues and the reds and how they fuse together. It was also a challenge for me as it was the first time I’ve painted a hand.”
