Buenos Aires Street Art, discover the best murals in the city.

Buenos Aires is renowned for its vibrant street art culture, with both Fodor's and the Huffington Post listing it as one of the top cities in the world to see urban art.

Street art is highly valued and more socially acceptable than in many other cities, and laws are relatively relaxed, with artists usually only needing the permission of the property owner or residents' association to create their work.

This has attracted big name street artists from far and wide, as well as helping local artists make a name for themselves.

The Buenos Aires city government has commissioned several large-scale pieces itself.
