In May 2014, Buenos Aiers Street Art organised the first international show for Argentine street artist Martin Ron at Mead Carney Fine Art gallery in Mayfair, London.
The show was curated by Mead Carney gallery director Nigel Mead.
Opening night was on Wednesday 7th May 2014 at Mead Carney at 45 Dover Street in London.
The show itself included a body of 26 paintings on canvas.
As well as paying for and arranging Martin’s trip to the UK and setting up a studio for him to paint the works for the show, Buenos Aiers Street Art also organised a series of walls for him to paint around Shoreditch, East London.
The gallery show and press organised by Buenos Aires Street Art’s Matt Fox-Tucker, with a three-page article appearing in Clarin’s Sunday magazine Viva, launched Martin’s career as an international street artist.
The opening paragraph of the article reads: “Mead Carney Art Gallery in Mayfair, an exclusive neighbourhood of London had news for collectors on 7th May: ‘Soup‘, the first show by a street artist to arrive at the world mecca of traditional art because of his works on the walls in the street, not just for his artworks painted on canvas.”
