The artwork has become a huge tourist attraction with visitors from around the world coming to admire the mega mural.

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.
