After just a day settling into a visit to Buenos Aires for the ArteBA festival, we realized many of the street-style shots we were snapping were of artists themselves. And then checking out their work, we could easily see how their your own personal style borrowed from their art. Check out the looks and works by our picks for some of the best up-and-coming creatives in the city, and stay tuned for our full photo diary from the sizzling-hot city on Monday!
Luna Paiva: Luna said she wanted to create something of a fantasy, and her lit-up bird piece seems to recall the warm glow of her own dress. Represented by Braga Menedez.
2 more fantastic talents after the break!
Diego Bianchi: Bianchi has a style that is very masculine and a bit raw, (he's very tall and has quite a head of hair), but he pulls it off with an edgy, poetic precision. His sculpture of a body made from found broken glass shards is a perfect example. Represented by Galeria Alberto Sendros.
Blok and Adolfo: These two young graffiti artists from Chile rocked boyish, fun-loving attitudes and paint-splattered pants. They listened to Ol Dirty Bastard and Charlie Parker, and drew lots of amused onlookers. Represented by Salon Tudor.
