Meeting of Styles festival hits Buenos Aires
The world famous graffiti festival Meeting of Styles hit Buenos Aires a couple of weeks ago.
The event was run by Estilo Libre in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment & Public Spaces, with sponsorship from Sinteplast & Sullair.
Over 130 local and international artists participated in the city-wide urban art festival. Artists from different backgrounds with a wide array of styles transformed buildings, bridges and public spaces throughout the city.
Meeting of Styles festivals are held throughout the world, however the events do not follow a rigid template and the vibe and format of events changes by city. There was some controversy regarding the inclusion of street artists in the Buenos Aires event, however their inclusion better reflected the nature of urban art in the city.
A formidable amount of art was created over 3 days. The festival breathed new life into some of the city’s faded graffiti halls of fame, and brought colour to a host of dull city walls.
We’re still taking photos, and will eventually have a complete record of all the art created for the festival on our Flickr account.
But for now here are a few of our favourite pieces:
