Ale Giorgga from Movimiento Petrushaus explained that the artworks were collected from Europe, U.S.A. and Latin America by different contacts and friends and send in the post to bring them all together especially for the event. “Social media played a huge role and the number of participants just grew and grew.” He added: “The idea was to have an exchange with international street artists from different parts of the world all organising themselves to get their artworks to Buenos Aires for the event. In this way paste ups are very different than graffiti and street art with it being more open allowing hundreds of artists to collaborate together.”
