A Buenos Aires native, Santiago studied architecture at the Universidad Nacional de Buenos Aires, where he also taught for six years. His passion for drawing lead him first to became a comic strip artist and later a street artist. He has painted walls all over South America, Mexico and also in Europe. His “signature” is a flying pig, which can be found all over Buenos Aires. He grew fond of these friendly animals while working on his family´s farm, which is located 200 km away from the city, in what used to be a small Irish colony known locally as Arroyo de Luna. This variety of activities give him a unique perspective on the city and its history that he looks forward to sharing with visitors on Context tours.
