Kiki told Buenos Aires Street Art: “For me Soda Stereo are one of the benchmarks of music in Latin America when I was growing up and I was really excited by the idea of painting a tribute to the band. The idea is I chose to develop the mural was to represent the band with Latin American vibe and link it a little to what I like to paint that is nature relating to our ancestors and the spiritual world.”

Kiki added: “I really love the Soda Stereo song ‘En la Ciudad de la Furia’ (‘In the City of Fury’), so I decided to create a fusion between nature and the city with a wild side to it.”
