A large photo stencil façade on the on the exterior of Plop!, an indie-fashion clothing store in San Telmo.
The stencil, at Defensa and Pasaje Giuffra, was one of many put up around town by the Sub Cooperative de Fotógrafos for the Cine Migrante festival.
Cine Migrante is an international film festival devoted to human rights and cultural integration. The artwork, depicting people marginalized due to migration, is meant to challenge the notion of aseptic public spaces through dynamic transformation.
As it goes with street art in San Telmo, the piece is metamorphosing, as it has recently been battered by rain and partially covered over by other artwork.
To see the incredible amount of effort involved put into the Sub Co-op’s stencils around San Telmo, see a short film about the process on Vimeo. To see more Buenos Aires street art on an exciting walking tour, reserve the Buenos Aires Graffiti tour.
