Another artist that made a difference was Argentian artist Bosoletti, who brought another perspective to street art. His piece needs to be digitally changed in order to see what the artist intended to show. In the photos below you can see what needs to be done to see the “full picture” of this piece.
Overall an amazing open gallery is there to be visited.
