Muro Sur has painted a series of new murals in Once, Buenos Aires relating to the neighbourhood. Photos by Buenos Aires Street Art.
The collective of artists from Lanus completed the artworks a couple of weeks ago. The main part of the mural on the side of an electrical power station features a portrait of a man wearing a coat and hat.
A section of the corner of the building features a female dancer with a background featuring different patterns of cloth. The district of Once is famous for its stores and wholesalers selling fabric of different colours and designs for dresses, clothes, curtains, sheets and tablecloths.
Another large mural is made up of a coloured patchwork featuring different characters including a man wearing a Roman cloak with the phrase ‘Hodie’ meaning ‘today in latin’. A dog, a candlestick and a book.
The top section of the murals features a cup with straw, lucky Chinese cat, a pair of shoes and a candlestick.
Another section of the mural has two cats climbing on top of rolls of fabric and cloth.
The electrical sub-station was previously painted with political propaganda and the new mural has been well received by the local residents. Muro Sur have also painted other artworks in the district dedicated to Argentine rock musicians.
The mural is located on Mitre y Uriburu.
