Martin Ron, Jiant and Guiviro finished a spectacular new mural in Villa Urquiza on Saturday night after 16 days of painting. It measures 412m2 (14m high by 25m wide with a section of wall measuring 3.1m x 21m) and is the mural that covers the biggest surface area of any building in Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires Street Art is proud to have organized the project. During the first stage of the mural, Martin painted a huge figure of a naked boy.
