graffitimundo is non-profit organisation which celebrates graffiti & street art in Buenos Aires and supports its artists. We run tours in close collaboration with a network of street artists, and share our first hand knowledge of the scene through friendly guided tours which reveal the extraordinary story behind the thriving urban art scene. Our tours take you off the beaten path to reveal the city's hidden graffiti hotspots and street art galleries. You’ll learn all about the Buenos Aires urban art scene, from the cultural and historical origins to the different styles and techniques on display. Stopping by an artists’ studio and finishing in the city’s only street art bar and gallery, the tour also gives you the chance to meet with artists and buy affordable artwork. All proceeds from our tours are used to keep our project running, and enable us to continue promoting the scene and supporting its artist.

I took the North City tour (they offer a variety) earlier today with Benjamin. Can't say I was blown away but all the street art I saw but a handful were absolutely amazing and well worth the trip/money. Benjamin, our guide, was as described by other Trip Advisor comments; super chill, very social, and helpful. In terms of Benjamin and... More

This tour had been recommended to us by an Australian tour guide who takes groups to South America. She said if we didn't do anything else while in Buenos Aires we must do this tour and she was correct. The tour and our guide Benjamin were amazing. The stories behind the street art revealed the culture and politics of Argentina,... More

This was an amazing tour, one of the best I've ever experienced. Our tour guide, Benjamin revealed a whole side of Buenos Aires that we would not have discovered otherwise. The art itself was colorful and vibrant, and Benjamin did a great job explaining its connection to politics and culture in Argentina. I had naively expected that the art would... More

I did graffitimundo tours 2 of the 3 days I was in BA. I would have done another on the third day had it not been cancelled due to weather. Yes you get to see incredible art, but you also get a great history lesson. A history lesson of the street scene but also Argentina. The guides love what they... More

I was delighted with the tour by Myriam, who provided the historical context for the vibrant, colorful and omnipresent art in a fun, humorous and engaging way. Understanding - and contrasting- the Argentine street art movement with that in London, Washington, etc lead to discussions and understanding the history, expression and simple relief brought to people's lives by the artists....

This is a fascinating tour and resource to take advantage of. It's well worth the price, not to mention, Graffiti Mundo is a non profit. My guide was Miriam and she was so passionate and knowledgeable about BA street art and its culture + history. It's a beautiful, raw and refreshing way to understand the city and its complex history.... More

Miriam was a great guide and we learned a lot about Street art and buenos Aires and the thriving culture that gave rise to this movement. We saw aspects of the city we might have missed on our own. The varied work of the artists and the concept of street art adorning public space (in fact, through their art making... More

Benjamin led the walking tour in Palermo with ease and was a relaxed guy. We all enjoyed his comments on the street art we saw and the background info. He involved everybody in this conversation and took himself time to hang around with us in an amazing street art bar called "Post Street Bar". Great and personal tour and interesting... More

The guide from Graffitimundo did a great job of explaining the evolution of street art in Buenos Aires and tying that progression to recent political, social and economic upheavals in Argentina. I think most of us got caught up in his enthusiasm. The tour was an excellent way to get an understanding of a unique aspect of Buenos Aires' artistic... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
