Peruvian artist Mario Abad has painted two giant murals in La Boca of Argentine tango legends Tita Merello and Aníbal Troilo.
The two new murals painted by Mario Abad cover five storeys of a building in La Boca and were completed last week.
New artworks featuring actress and tango dancer Tita Merello with earrings and Anibal ‘Pichuco’ Troilo playing the bandoneon. The artworks painted by Mario also include filetado-style decoration painted with neon spray paint.
As well as painting graffiti, Mario Abad is well-known for his realistic portraits using aerosol. He has painted various portraits of rap legends like Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur around San Telmo, as well as large-scale murals of Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi around Buenos Aires.
