1- If you had to choose a Street Art piece that you created, as a transformation of the urban space, which one would you choose? How does this Street Art piece denote urban space metamorphosis?

The mural I chose is a mural located in the train station in my city, Tigre. A very busy and central place.

2- Why did you make this Street Art piece in this urban space? Was it the town hall or the property owner who authorized or asked you to create it? Can we consider this work as illegal/vandalism or legal, what is your criteria?

This work was carried out at the request of the municipality of Tigre for the world day of the fight against AIDS. I was summoned to make a mural to raise awareness and inform about AIDS. And they gave me the freedom to create without restrictions. I think that when it is like this, it is when the most beautiful works come out. It took me several months to come up with an idea that I love.

3- What is the message you want to communicate through this Street Art piece? Is it related to the urban space where you did it?

This work was carried out at the request of the municipality of Tigre for the world day of the fight against AIDS. I was summoned to make a mural to raise awareness and inform about AIDS. And they gave me the freedom to create without restrictions. I think that when it is like this, it is when the most beautiful works come out. It took me several months to come up with an idea that I love.

4- How was this work integrated into the urban space? What was the interaction that the inhabitants of this city had with your project? Did they participate in its creation?

People did not participate in the painting of the mural, but during the week that I was painting, I received a lot of nice comments, encouragement, congratulations and thanks.

5- Do you think it is important that the local people participate during the production of your work and that they become artists modifying the urban space or do you prefer to carry out your projects alone without anyone seeing you?

In general I prefer to do it alone, because I can concentrate better, fully immerse myself in the wall, but the street has its magic. I have had very interesting talks from people I would never have met otherwise. I made friends with people on the streets who slept in the station.

6- According to you, what is the criteria that determines your Street Art work modifies the urban space and why is your work considered aesthetically well done?

The return of the people is what shows me that the mural has been achieved.

7-What is the “historical future” of your work? Should we take care of it, preserve it and repaint it as if it were a museum’s piece of art? Or should it be allowed to age with the city itself?

It seems to me that this is what street art is all about, one paints in the street, and there is always the possibility that it will be painted over, destroyed, or made Old, it is part of the life of the mural.

8- How does your work add value to the urban space in which it is produced?

A message of conscience. And beauty in sight.

9- What were the difficulties that you encountered during the completion of your work modifying the urban space?

The weather.

10- Why is urban art important to modify the urban space? What sort of projects are you planning to do in the future ?

My plan is to leave my mark all over the world, I dream of painting murals and being recognized by the whole world.
