sam-poeta-villa-ballester-BA-1Argentinian artists SAM and Poeta were until recently working on tis new mural painted in the streets of Villa Ballester i Buenos Aires, Argentina.
SAM and Poeta keep bringing modern abstract art into the urban landscape creating pieces that combine bright colours and puzzle-like compositions. This last collaboration is no exception.
Titled “Alegórico Contacto” (allegorical contact) the new mural can, according to the artists, be described as two constructivist compositions engaged in an intimate and analytic dialogue about colour and contrast, and giving shape to a symbiosis where the internal balance between them is defined by colour choices. Or as explained by the artists:

“Dos formas constructivas dialogan analíticamente, entre cromatismo y contraste suscitan una simbiosis compositiva, que armoniza al color como equilibrio. Las formas geométricas explican el balance pactado en el espacio, haciendo perceptible un aspecto que constituye una sola pieza.” – Poeta & Sam
