Owner description: BA Street Art Tours tours will show you some of the biggest murals in neighborhoods that aren’t in the tourist guidebooks. See huge murals and works by international street artists like Blu, Fintan Magee, Alice Pasquini, Alfredo Segatori and Martin Ron. Many of the murals that are included on this tour were curated and sponsored by BA Street Art. Our expert guides will also explain about the growth of street art and graffiti in Argentina, the stories behind the artworks, different painting techniques as well as political propaganda. BA Street Art was founded in 2009 and is closely connected to the street art scene. We support local artists and have organised more than 100 murals in the city of Buenos Aires in the last six years. Funds received from our tours also go towards funding future mural projects.

I can thoroughly recommend this tour by Matt who is a former UK journalist now living in BA. His depth of knowledge of the graffiti artists and barrios where you can find find graffiti and murials is extensive and humbling. He was very willing to share his knowledge and incredibly helpful with advice about BA in general. This tour should be on everybody's must do list. Also very good value.

Matt is very knowledgable about the art, the artists, and the social fabric of the street art community. We ventured to the outer barrios of BA and saw examples of various types of street art on park and building walls. Through it all, Matt kept adding to the experience with his knowledge and was able to answer all questions put to him. The time flew by even though it keeps threatening to rain the whole time. Strongly recommended.

Matt was absolutely amazing with his knowledge of all the local artists and taking us to see a lot of different styles of street art. I particularly liked hearing personal stories about the artists and their development and exploration of their artistic style. The tour was totally worth it!

A friend and I went on this tour on my last day in BA and it was very enjoyable. Matt was very friendly and knowledgeable on the the art and he also has a book published on the subject. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone visiting Buenos Aires.

My husband and I live here and in an effort to always try something new with our visitors, we took this tour over this past weekend. We got to really understand both the graffiti art scene and a part of Buenos Aires that we really didn't know much about. Also, it provided a great way to show our guests other parts of the city and the real BA, not just the Plaza de Mayo or Palermo SoHo. I would recommend this tour to other people and definitely will send other guests who are interested in learning more about street art!
