This amazing facade of a old town house in San Telmo features numerous designs copied from Banksy in Buenos Aires. Check out BA Street Art’s exclusive story and photos.
Banksy in Buenos Aires – stencils on abandoned house
The blocked-up windows on the ground and first floors of the building have been decorated with a number of well-known Banksy images including ‘Girl with Umbrella’.
Banksy rain stencil girl
The stencil also known as ‘Rain Girl’ is a copy of a Banksy stencil that appeared in New Orleans, USA in August 2008 to mark the anniversary of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina.
Banksy’s paint roller man
Banksy also produced a stencil of a man holding a paint roller in New Orleans as a swipe against the Gray Ghost, an anti-street art crusader who had made it his mission to erase every bit of graffiti in the city by painting splotches of grey.
Banksy stencil of man wearing gas mask
In the past Banksy has created several stencils depicting characters wearing gas masks including a girl in Brick Lane, London.
Rats are a trademark of Banksy but the Bristolian has also created a number of designs depicting black cats.
Artists who painted the Banksy stencils are unknown
These artworks were painted two months ago but the artist hasn’t left a signature, so if anyone knows their identity please let us know. Many thanks to Michal who discovered the house and told us about it on our Buenos Aires street art tour
