Tattooed walls and some great art
January 11th, 2008

I always find it amazing how one can find magic anywhere. We simply have to open our eyes and look…

This is the house where I live in Buenos Aires. After a really challenging first few days in a very dicey area of the city where I was robbed, I found solace in Palermo Soho.

Today’s search delivered some fine art…

I also discovered a graffiti artist spraying stuff on old car panels…kind of underground with a cult following…interesting enough I suppose…

However, it is once again the tattooed walls that do not disappoint…

And like always the day is incomplete without a few special finds…

Two very strange altars…

Then there is always that one gem amongst them all……………
