Mit fogunk csinálni?

We will meet in a Café in the industrial non touristy area of La Boca where I will give you a context of Graffiti and Urban Art in the city of Buenos Aires. No worries, no more than 5 minutes, you are there to see and talk about murals. From there, we will start a walk that explores the 3 editions of the Color BA - a mural festival that reunited artists from around the world to paint the walls of La Boca -, having a conversation not only about the different styles of Graffiti in Buenos Aires and the reasons why this is one of the most important cities in the world when it comes to street art, but also about its social meaning and the importance of this art to La Boca's community and the relationship of its people with it.
Other things to note
Please arrive 15 minutes prior the experience begin. We meet inside Café Vittorio and we DO NOT CANCEL the tour due single bookings; so if you travel alone, no worries, you may have a blind date. ;)

Marcelo: I'm a Brazilian who came to Buenos Aires in 2011 for the first time and I just couldn't have enough of it. After many comings and goings, in 2014 I decided to assume a serious relationship with this city and established here for real. Best decision of my life. Since 2016, I've been dedicating myself to show people the city I fell in love with, combining my History major with my screenwriting studies to tell these stories.

Cristina: I came from Galicia and, as many of my ancestors, I got stuck in this city. I love the way people improvise and live day by day. I am currently studying Social Anthropology, which helps me understanding -a little bit more- beyond Western-European parameters where I am and who are we sharing the streets with. Plus, I am a football player and I guess that qualifies as a perfect match.

Hol leszünk?

Get prepared to walk and discover the streets of the great and unique neighborhood of La Boca. But not the beaten/"tourists trap"/souvenir shops/"take a picture with a Tango dancer for U$ 10" path. I'm talking about the B Side, the places that make this neighborhood so authentic.

La Boca's real experience! This was my first Airbnb tour and I was left with a great feeling after been shown La Boca's neighborhood by Marcelo. It was good fun and very engaging. We got to see the back roads and it's locals, we heard the stories behind the street art and the got to know about the artists who painted the murals. An unique experience for those who are not looking for the ordinary. Amongst many things, I personally learnt a lot about Argentina's history throughout the tour. Marcelo knowledgbly shared local facts that made us understand how important this neighborhood is for Buenos Aires.

You have to go on this tour to get a real sense of the culture and history of this neighborhood. The graffiti itself is incredible, and Marcelo explains and analyzes it in such a fascinating way, so that you end up learning far beyond into subjects like politics, race, anthropology...you learn about the special relationship La Boca has to soccer, to street art, to the larger city of Buenos Aires, even to firefighters! I can't speak enough good about Marcelo's in-depth knowledge of his subject, and the enthusiasm and intellect he brings to it. And his love of the neighborhood is clear. You will see amazing street art and feel connected to a part of Buenos Aires most people never see.

Nous avons effectué la visite avec Marcelo, guide passionné qui a su nous captiver à travers ses connaissances approfondies sur l'histoire du Graffiti tout en mettant en lien la politique et histoire du quartier, ainsi que de l'Argentine en général. Nous avons pu profité d'une expérience au delà des 3h initialement prévues tellement nous étions emportés par ses explications et ainsi découvrir une nouvelle facette de La Boca, en dehors des a priori et clichés négatifs. Si vous voulez sortir des sentiers battus et que vous aimez l'art et l'histoire engagée, ce tour est vivement recommandé !

Marcelo showed us how to understand La Boca and Buenos Aires through the perspective of graffiti and street art. Through the street art we also learned still more about recent Argentine history. La Boca is a very old and, in certain respects, a somewhat neglected neighborhood and Marcelo helped us understand its development and the role that art, in many forms, now plays there. With the Boca Juniors winning the futbol championship the previous day, the club’s role, both positively and, perhaps to a degree, negatively were also described. The phenomenon of gentrification and its effects on a neighborhood such as this were also explored. Marcelo is an extremely personable and engaging individual. His English is impeccable and we can only imagine that his Spanish and Portuguese (his native language) are as well.

We had a terrific tour of the murals of La Boca with Marcelo. He has extensive knowledge of, and appreciation for the artists and the community. He went out of his way to ensure that we had a great experience. I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn about the history and culture of this very interesting community. The tour will be especially valuable to those interested in public art.
