Spanish artist Escif completed three impressive murals on his trip to Buenos Aires and Buenos Aires Street Art has photos of them all.
Escif has written the phrase ‘Inflar el Peso de un Peso’ (‘Inflate the weight of the peso’). ‘Peso’ in Spanish means weight and is also the name of the Argentine currency with its highest denomination being the 100 peso bill. The mural appears to make fun of the hyper inflation in Argentina. It features three giant kilogram weights in denominations of 1, 10 and 100.
Another mural by Escif is entitled ‘Buenos Aires’ (good airs) with five jars containing different smells from the Argentine capital.
The aromas are a barbecue, the Riachuelo river, gas, plastic and chocolate but you won’t find many pleasant smells near the contaminated Riachuelo.
‘Escif also painted another great mural with Blu which we published exclusive photos of a few weeks ago. It explains how to pick a lock with a credit card in five easy steps.
