The collective MACA together with volunteers completed a huge mural last week in the biggest villa in Buenos Aires.
The artwork of 370m2 in Villa 21-24 in Barracas took the 13 members of the Museo a Cielo Abierto (MACA) collective six weeks to complete with help from from neighbours from the area. The project was organised by Catalina Cabrera together with artistic coordinator Julian Zacariaz.
Julian told BA Street Art that it was a project that was realised with the help and support of the local community and volunteers: “The theme for the mural came about working with the neighbours through a participative design that we created together relating to origins, vegetation, infancy and the history of the area. We gathered this information during the 15 days that we were working on the design and the result gives us a lot of pride.
