When you ask Porteños (Argentinians born in Buenos Aires City) about their roots they’re going to talk about their neighborhood. We are bound to them, shaped by them, given our identity, accent and personality by them. That neighborhood’s DNA runs so deep into us that poets draw rimes, singers carves Milongas and artists praise, frame and shrine them.
So, I also wanted to pay my tribute. I am a Porteño, you know? My homage has the shape of design and my idea is to celebrate the cradle.
A personal touch that speaks about my experiences and hopes. About a never ending search for infinite cosmopolitan creations. It is not about representing but imaging and experimenting the effect of that encounter. That is how this journey begins, with the ones that you can find down here.
But I’ll keep exploring, map on hand, because every Porteño neighborhood has something beautiful to tell. And I am feeling like a payador.
