Graffitimundo — Mart Aire

ARTIST CAMPAIGN

October 20, 2022

An ongoing project showcasing the work of artists from around the world encouraging people to imagine what the world could look like if city, national, and international leaders took the climate action that C40 cities take.

Graffitimundo is an organisation that celebrates urban art and graffiti in Buenos Aires. Made up of a group of friends with backgrounds in art, design, marketing, communication and journalism, Graffitimundo’s goal was to connect people with art and its creators, highlighting the particularities of a unique context in the world.

Mart Aire, an artist with Graffitimundo based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, said the inspiration for this work came from learning about C40's work on urban nature and the C40 Summit visual identity. 

Mart said: "I designed two pieces and decided to recycle wood to build the tripods to support the works. I felt that becoming aware, taking an interest in the event, and seeing how to contribute to it resonated when recycling wood. I also put together the frames, tightened the fabric, trying to use the hands and body, so that the materials did not have to be bought new.

"Thanks to graffiti and muralism, I have been able to explore a lot of the city. These works relate to previous pieces through the concept that nature springs from within us. One of the works has the sun and a bird flying; a new birth and a new beginning are arriving, through awareness of the  climate change we are experiencing."
