I'm a British expat living in Buenos Aires and founder of Buenos Aires Street Art. My background is as a journalist working for the BBC. With a friend from Brazil, we wrote the book Textura Dos Buenos Aires Street Art (Mark Batty Publisher) and then started the first blog and website to publish photos of new artworks and interviews with the city's artists.

Buenos Aires Street Art promotes the local street art scene and works closely with its artists. We run the only street art tour in Buenos Aires that includes the biggest and best murals in the city. Our tours have also been featured on the BBC, Al Jazeera, Time Out, The Independent and Huffington Post.

Our tours start in Colegiales and finish in Palermo and with our expert guides we visit the north-west part of the city to see its giant murals by some of the best international and local street artists.

June L. for Buenos Aires Graffiti Tour

This tour was awesome! Easily one of my favorite experiences in BA. Matt is extremely knowledgeable about graffiti and has written a book about it. He used to be a reporter at the BBC, and he has an inquisitive perspective. He really knows the street art scene inside and out... and he's actively involved in advocacy and community organization too! We peppered him with questions from everything about the current political situation to drama between graffiti artists, and he was able to answer them with a combination of interesting anecdotes and objective commentary.
