The press for the gallery show at Mead Carney was organised by Buenos Aires Street Art’s Matt Fox-Tucker, with a three-page article appearing in Clarin’s Sunday magazine Viva, helping launch 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.”

As well as sponsoring and arranging Martin’s trip to the UK and setting up a studio for him to paint the works for the show, Buenos Aires Street Art also organised a series of walls for him to paint around Shoreditch, East London.
