Gaucho and Horse

At the Plaza Matienzo, Colegiales, there is an apartment with two walls that face directly toward the plaza. Each wall features amazing examples of Buenos Aires Street Art but it's Jim Vision's enormous painting of Gaucho and Horse that dominates the plaza.

Painted in 2011 the artwork is officially 'Untitled' and was created during the Meeting of Styles.

Arranged by the organization Freestyle and the Ministry of Environment and Public Space of the City of Buenos Aires, 130 urban artists from 14 countries were painting the City of Buenos Aires from 11 to 25 November 2011, in the first international urban art event held in Buenos Aires. The MOS, as it is known internationally, was created in Germany in 2002, and has since traveled to Berlin, New York, Shanghai, London, Budapest, St. Petersburg, Cape Town, Sao Paulo, Lima, Caracas and Barcelona, among other cities.
