Finally I can post some pictures about how was my trip this year to the great city of Buenos Aires in Argentina, still dreaming with the fantastic time that my family and I spent pretty much eating the best food ever, walking all around the city, famous places and meeting a bunch of interesting and talented people. I was invited to give a speech for the second edition of the Puma Urban Art festival during August 1st and 2nd along with the well known artist and illustrator Nate Williams, the brazilian graffitti-duo of Alto*Contraste (Lee & Lou) and some others important local artists. The festival took place in the Auditorium 2, part of the Centro Cultural Recoleta complex with an affluence of 3,000+ people offering Illustration & art lectures, live painting, skate & bike exhibitions, live music and screening shows.
Originally we planned to stay for one week only but we ended up staying long 25 days, we had the great opportunity to live the real experience of being in Buenos Aires almost like a local and we totally loved it! Hopefully one day we will go back again and maybe for much longer time :)
