Urban art: Palermo Soho

This is one of many art manifestations troughout the city. You can find it in the fashionable "new" quarter of Buenos Aires. I say "new" because it´s one of the barrios where the population settled in after the yellow fever. Now it´s the avant-garde place filled with cool and modern restaurants. This place is also packed with craftsman and designers. I took this yesterday before it started to rain... (now its pouring on Buenos Aires) Posted by Picasa

This looks a lot like the tiled art that has been posted by Manuel and, I think, Bob. I also saw some like this in Austria.

It looks like mosaic. Must have taken a long time to stick the little bits on.
