Muralism in the City
Jenny Ustick

19.06.17 22.06.17


Within the framework of the ´acePIRAR | Artist-in-Residency International Program, Kiik Create (New York-Puerto Rico) and Toia Grehan (Argentina) –artists who had been in residence in previous years– made a 45 meters mural in collaboration with the current artist-in-residence Jenny Roesel Ustick (USA) in the Plaza Gurruchaga of the Villa Crespo neighborhood in Buenos Aires.

This was a project in which the coincidence of wills, desire to work for the community and the talent of the artists resulted in the creation of a work in the public space of the city, which functioned as an extension of the networking produced by residences between the artists and all of them with the community of the City of Buenos Aires.

The mural was possible thanks to the collaboration of Comuna 15 de Buenos Aires, Graffitimundo and Sinteplast.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
