In August 2013, Buenos Aires Street Art organised and curated the biggest mural in Buenos Aires that measures 412m2 in the neighbourhood of Villa Urquiza. The mega mural entitled ‘Tale of the Parrots’, was created over 16 days by Argentine muralist Martin Ron together with Jiant and Guiviro. Scroll down for more information and photos.
Buenos Aires City Government also helped sponsor the mural project.
The idea for the mural was that of Buenos Aires Street Art founder Matt Fox-Tucker to select an artist to create a spectacular mural that would transform the zone where he lives into a true urban art district and one of the best places to see street art in the city. The mural has also appeared in international press such as BBC, Al Jazeera, Brasil TV, CCTV China, The Telegraph, Clarín and La Nación newspapers.
