Unintentionally surreal is probably the closest to a definition I can reach for Tierra Santa in Buenos Aires. For those out there who thought there was a need develop ostentation of the ‘Glow-in-the-dark’ Virgin Mary into a whole park of it’s own then ‘The Holy Land’ embodies it.
There’s something distinctly celebratory about Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile’s street art. In contrast to a great deal of the street art I’ve seen across Europe – which is often equal in terms of beauty – there appears a greater respect given to its craft and production in these cities.
I’ve taken quite a long break from this blog, for a number of different reasons; however, travelling through South America (without a plan) on honeymoon, with my wife, has sparked my interest in documenting what I see around me again.
