It was a nice surprise to find another South American artist participating of this year’s CityLeaks festival in Cologne, Germany.
A founding member of the DOMA art collective, formed by Mariano Barbieri, Matias Vigliano (Parquerama), Orilo Blandini, and himself, Julián CHU Manzelli is also one of the early pioneers of street art in Buenos Aires, contributing in many ways to change the face of the movement in Argentina by working towards a more playful, abstract and colourful aesthetics and visual language that highlights his background as a graphic designer.
I really enjoy this new mural, but also his sculptural work. It’s so much fun!
