You will visit the coolest neighbourhood of Buenos Aires for an artsy walk where you will get to know the street art of Palermo from the perspective of a contemporary art curator. At the same time I will share tips that I use as a professional photographer, so you can become more creative with your smartphone or camera. You will discover how Palermo changed to be the most exciting artistic hub of Argentina, the first one of its kind in the whole country. We will explore the different types of street art while I tell you the stories behind the artworks and artists that most of them I know personally. We will visit the Botanical Garden too, one of the greatest of the city, that has also sculptures. Along the experience, I will take some photos of you with the device you bring so you can have a nice memory. I recommend to do this walk the first day you arrive to Buenos Aires as I will share with you my list of places that you can't miss in the area, my favorite art galleries and a guide of the city as well, so you can experience BA as a local. *On Mondays the Garden is closed so we will visit more street art instead* **To learn how to use your manual camera I recommend first to take my photo class: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/297363 ----- I host too: -Portraits Photoshoot: www.airbnb.com/experiences/187987 -Photowalk San Telmo: www.airbnb.com/experiences/231330
Hi, I'm Flor! I'm a professional photographer (www.davalleph.com @davalleph), art curator, artist & fashion designer who lives, works and is in love with Palermo. I was born and raised in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. I lived in East London in 2012 and that was when my passion for street art began, seeing how walls were changing in front of me. Coming back to BA I went to study art curating and since then I've curated exhibitions (check here: www.davalleph.com/curaduria) and also taught Art History. Now I'm working on my thesis in my Master in Curating Contemporary Art. Since 9 years ago I work as a photographer at my own company doing corporate events and photoshoots and also teaching photography. One of my series of conceptual photography have been recently selected by the Ministry of Culture for an exhibition.
An Alfajor is a traditional sweet in Argentina that you have to try! It has dulce de leche which is a delight!

We will walk through Palermo Soho, the Arts and Design hub of Buenos Aires, a place known for its colourful murals, where artists have freedom to create. This place is like an open air museum. We will finish the experience at the Botanical Garden, near Plaza Italia. Some days we do the route the other way around, starting at the Garden and finishing in Palermo Soho. In all these places you will find many chances to take outstanding photographs.

In some rare occasions the park could close without notice. Instead we will discover more street art! All guests must book this experience to attend, even if they're not interested in taking photographs. This is a bilingual experience, so in some occasions, I could be explaining in two languages.
