Graffiti Hidden Walls Tour

See the hidden art of Buenos Aires on this unique walking tour. The graffiti art movement has recently gained popularity among those trying to share their social and political messages, gang members, hip hop artists, and a growing subculture of visual artists. However, the movement is not necessarily new. In fact, the use of graffiti dates back to ancient times, when the Roman Empire ruled almost all of Europe. Today the connotation of "graffiti" is definitively more negative than those graffitied declarations of love and political rhetoric from ancient Rome and Greece. Still, there is a blossoming culture that exists on the graffiti walls all over the world. On this Graffiti tour of Buenos Aires, you will have the chance to take a look into the movement evolving right here on the city's streets. This urban art style compels government authorities to dislike these modern forms of vandalism, but locals and tourists are always interested in what the artists have to say.

On this walking tour of Buenos Aires's graffiti, you will learn about the fascinating history that continues to grow, educate, and inspire. Explore the neighborhoods of La Boca and Barracas, and get a deep look at the effects of policy and economics that have led to recent societal change. On your tour, you may visit current art festivals and urban and local artist projects. See political statements, activist graffiti, and large-scale murals by local and international artists. If you are already a street art fan, this walking tour will be ideal for you. Photographers will also find amazing photo opportunities at every turn. Everyone is welcome. You'll finish the tour with a greater understanding of how the city's history has influenced public expression.
