Manica & Luk
Palimpsest [2]

02.02.15 11.02.15

The second intervention in ‘ace‘s terrace, within the Palimpsest Project, was from another collective that consisted of two female artists from Toronto, Canada.

Buck Teeth Girls Club (Andrea Manica Melissa Luk) is a mural collective interested in creating artwork in outdoor, non-exclusive settings.  Inspired by other female graffiti artists (Hanky Panky Girls crew from Toulouse, France; Margaret Kilgallen of Beautiful Losers; Maya Hayuk), their images focus on representing femininity and delicacy in a manner that retains sauciness.

Previous murals from the project are varied, from an industrial aesthetic -Felipe García (Colombia)- to a balanced relation of geometric and organic shapes- Kiik Create-. We believe that the intervention of Buck Teeth Girls Club, with its ever growing natural and fantastic shapes will add an interesting new dimension to the walls

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.
