Argentine Painting

      This mural can be found on the streets of Buenos Aires. Ever Siempre is the artist that painted this piece. He named it "Description of the arrival of an ideology". Ever painted this mural using hyperrealistic characters and abstract details. It is significant because it adds color to the streets of the capital of Argentina. I think it is a cool mural that is vibrant and bold. It is cool to look at and study the piece and what it means.
