The Incredible Murals of Argentine Street Artist Martin Ron
If you’re looking for a place to visit that has a growing and impressive street art scene, you may want to consider Argentina. According to the Huffington Post, “while it’s illegal to paint on the side of a building in the public right of way without an owners’ permission, artists can do pretty much as they please with an owner’s OK,” which is a lot less complicated than it is here in the United States and many other places around the world. One Argentine artist who has taken advantage of this is Martin Ron.
The artist has done numerous large-scale, surreal murals around Buenos Aires and recently made his international debut with his first ever solo show entitled “Soup” at London’s Mead Carney Fine Art. “I see society as a great big soup,” says Ron of the exhibition title. “The three main ingredients of the soup are man, nature and technology and they are all mixed together in a disorganized way without care or meaning.”
That philosophy can also be seen in many of his murals, as he blends human body parts with machinery in interesting ways.
