In many cities you might think street artists would get into trouble for painting walls in public places but that’s rarely the case in Buenos Aires, where the city government has put up a plaque recognising the talents of Ever, Jaz, Mart and Poeta and thanking the artists for transforming an outdoor space.
Franco Fasoli, more commonly known as Jaz, is one of Argentina’s best known and most talented street artists. He told Buenos Aires Street Art how his style has evolved from the most classic of porteño traditions, the tango.
Thanks to Esteban Grinberg for sending in these terrific photos from Constitución and Congreso in Buenos Aires. The first two images were painted in a square close to the motorway 9 de Julio and not far from Plaza Constitución. They form part of a giant mural painted by Gualicho, Ever, Run Dont Walk, Stencil Land and Jaz.
