Galeria Union is a new project lead by Jonny Robson and Marina Charles, both founders of graffitimundo.
Having curated art exhibitions in Buenos Aires and internationally, the launch of a new gallery space in the city represents a natural progression in graffitimundo’s objectives to promoting Argentine urban art and support local artists, creating new spaces and opportunities for connection.
Union opened in 2014 in a beautifully restored period property in San Telmo, and features several spaces for temporary exhibitions, a permanent collection of works from the city’s leading artists, together with studio and production space for local artists.

BUENOS AIRES HERALD
…to make the most of the Graffiti Mundo tour which stops off at galleries en route, a whole afternoon should be put by. The guides are very knowledgeable and there is plenty of art to soak up.”
La calle es una galería a cielo abierto cada vez más sorprendente gracias a las troupes aficionadas a dar color a la ciudad con esténciles, grafitis, stickers y afiches
“Perfect for the curious tourist or the established art geek, the girls at graffitmundo offer a 3-hour tour that allows you to get up close and personal with not only the art but its creators as well. The tour winds throughout the city, visiting various walls, buildings, bridges, and local parks that showcase some of the best street artists of Buenos Aires.”
“[graffitimundo] are enthusiastic about showing participants what they want to see, and the opportunity to meet the artists opens your eyes to the richness of the expanding community that exists in the city.”
A vibrant and expressive scene exists in Buenos Aires, where advocates argue there is a higher proportion of quality work than cheap graffiti tagging.
