The mural covers three sides of an apartment block in Caballito that previously had a wall surface covered in unsightly scrawl and graffiti. Ice said he had spent several moments contemplating what theme would suit the prominent location on a busy street corner near the railway station.

Eventually Ice decided on an idea that he says has “a bit of the vortex”, taking viewers to another dimension.  He says the concept is also similar to landscapes in the blockbuster movie Avatar that he saw recently.
