In the 1950’s, a local artist, Quinquela Martínwas, wanted to revive the La Boca area of Buenos Aires so he painted the houses in bright paint just like the poor dockers did many years before. It was so obviously different from the rest of Buenos Aires that people declared it an open area museum, and it quickly became a major tourist attraction. #buenosaires #argentina #argentinavacation
La Boca in Buenos Aires is full of these brightly painted buildings. The story is that the dock workers who lived in this area were poor and had to build their houses using cast-away pieces of corrugated metal they found on the docks. And they painted those houses with paint that they found. So they never had enough paint of the same colour to cover the entire house, so the houses became a brightly coloured patchwork.
