The artwork he has named ‘Homeless Bound’ shows a man being burdened by the weight of a house he is carrying on his back and relates to the global housing crisis.

The design on a the blocked-up house in Palermo took the Australian artist two and a half days to complete and the figure is based on a photo Fintan took of Buenos Aires Street Art founder Matt Fox-Tucker with whom he was staying with while he was in Argentina. Fintan told Buenos Aires Street Art: “The figure represents a homeless person carrying a house on his back rather like a hermit crab. Palermo is an upper-class neighbourhood and the house used to be occupied by homeless people who were then displaced and had to find a new home.”

    Excellent artistic expression. I´d like to know the address of this graffiti. I live in Buenos Aires and would like to see it live and tell other people to visit.
