Pelado paints factory building in Barracas

Pelado is painting a huge mural on a factory building in Barracas that includes portraits of real life people and workers from the neighbourhood. The project is the third phase of the mural project named ‘The Return of Quinquela’ that stretches an entire block close to the Riachuelo River.

Pelado started this mural a month ago and said: “We are going to continue extending the mural on the adjacent houses and have the support of the neighbourhood and it is an unique experience and incredible to be painting and see the characters in the mural walking around and going about their daily business.”
