Stencil art in Buenos Aires exploded following the 2001 economic crisis in Argentina. Different artists and collectives took to the streets using art as a cathartic tool, expressing their vision of the country’s chaotic reality in incredible murals.
10 years on, stencil remains one of the most remarkable aspects of Buenos Aires street art scene, with pieces demonstrating unparalleled levels of artistry and meticulous technique.
Whereas stencil art in other countries is limited by the need to paint quickly to avoid being arrested, in Buenos Aires it has developed with the luxury of time – enabling artists to push themselves in terms of their compositions and techniques.
Stencil workshops last 4 hours and are organized on request. The workshop includes an introduction to the history and background of stencil, as well as the creation of your own masterpiece in stencil art with guidance and support from some of the most inspiring street artists working in the streets today. Workshops are held at our art gallery UNION in Palermo.
