murals


Mural designed by Mono Gonzalez and assisted by Roberto, Armando, Sebastian and Philip as well as others working with Cultura en Movimiento. This is one of 11 murals that we painted in Buenos Aires in 1 week in Febuary 2006. The 4 of us were invited to Buenos Aires to paint the murals as a part of Cultura En Movimiento, where we met with other artists, musicians, poets, and social activists in Buenos Aires in order to share art and ideas in the context of 30th anniversary of the Golpe de Estado, or military coup in Argentina. We went painting murals against the military dictatorship in Argentina in order to remember it and aknowledge that it won't happen again. As part of cultura en movimiento, we painted murals in which anybody participated in the collective broadening the horizons of art in an international and social context. Mono Gonzalez designed each mural and Sebastian, Roberto and I worked with the line tracing and form as many other participated with the colors. The murals are left signed only as Cultura en Movimiento being as they are by a group of people and for all the people, it is not an individualist nor egotistic art form, rather a social and inclusive art form that works in contrast to the gallery art system and as a tool for raising and working socially conscious. To view the rest of the murals we painted in Argentina visit the links to the arte brigadista, or cultura en movimiento argentina which are on the side.
