Pum Pum is one the best known artists participating in the street art scene of Buenos Aires, and another of a generation of artists to take their talents in design and illustration to the city walls. Beginning in the early 2000’s, while many of her contemporaries experimented with aerosol and letter-based graffiti or stencil, Pum Pum gravitated towards latex paint and brushes in a figurative, character-inspired muralism.
The iconic two-dimensional protagonists that define Pum Pum’s work are created with bold color and clean line, and are characterized by a mixture of the artist’s own eclectic influences; from Hello Kitty to legendary hardcore punk bands like Black Flag. A graphic designer by trade, Pum Pum creates murals and works on canvas, as well as unique illustrations and screen-printed series.
