“A commissioned piece of graffiti on your home can actually raise the value of your home in Buenos Aires.” she says in a factual manner. As my brain catches up with my ears, I interrupt our guide and say, “What, can you repeat that last part about increasing the value of your home?”
Clearly I have a lot to learn about Street Art as even as our guide explained it to me I had a hard time believing it. Most of the time I have a hard time understanding street art, so I hoped this walking tour around the graffiti hot spots of Buenos Aires would provide me a better understanding. Granted – as I stared at the piece of brightly colored wall in front of me created by the street artist Gaulicho – I did find it pleasing. It was bright orange and yellow with his signature psychedelic trademarks of hands and eyes. It appeared playful, and I felt like somewhere in all of those images and jagged lines there was a story. I thought to myself – maybe I am learning to appreciate this type of art after all.
