Photos of the city's lovely, wild graffiti scene.

Over at Untapped Cities, a street art lover has posted a collection of photographs of her new favorite graffiti city - Buenos Aires. Sivan Askayo visited the city for a tour of the city's art. She writes:

I learned so much about the street art culture and how influential it is in Buenos Aires. In fact, it is legal, like in Rio de Janeiro,  and supported. I’ve learned about the different and creative artists and heard some “Behind the scenes/behind the walls” sort of stories. Once the tour was over, I was able to recognize the unique style of every street artist in the tour and I was so anxious, in fact, to take the tour again in the next day.
