graffitimundo is an organisation dedicated to increasing awareness of the rich heritage and dynamic culture of Argentine urban art.
Our project started in 2009, when we began working with a network of local artists to develop the first tour of its kind in the world – guided tours of the city’s urban art scene. We wanted to connect people with the art and artists of this unique movement, and highlight the cultural and historical context of the scene.
Over time graffitimundo evolved and became increasingly focused on promotion and representation of individual artists. To reach beyond Buenos Aires we set up a virtual gallery and began curating exhibitions internationally. In order to reach an even wider audience we began documenting the art and stories of the scene in a book and documentary.
graffitimundo is run by a collective of friends with backgrounds in art, design, marketing, media and journalism. We work with museums, galleries, NGOs, community groups, businesses, charities, brands, universities and the media, in addition to thousands of individuals who simply want to learn more about the urban art scene of Buenos Aires.
The city exists in a constant state of change, art scenes evolve and urban art can appear and disappear in a matter of hours. But whilst our tours, projects and partners are constantly changing, our focus will always be on promoting the urban art scene, and supporting its artists.
