We spent all weekend with [our guide]. His knowledge of the history of modern Latin American Art is extensive and he is not afraid to share his favorites pieces from the collection. Taking the conversation to the street brought us to a residential neighborhood outside the tourist zone. [Our guide] shared a long-term mural project which included artists from many South American countries. His knowledge of the genre and painting techniques were such a delight. . . And his English is expert! We have a new friend!
MALBA - Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires Street Art Tour
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.
