“Brothers” by Ever in La Boca, Buenos Aires

Ever Siempre spent some time in his hometown of Buenos Aires in Argentina where he just finished working on a large mural somewhere on the streets of the “La Boca” neighborhood.

This busy neighborhood has the highest percentage of poverty in the city, also “La Boca” is the neighborhood with the highest percentage of renters in the Capital Federal, due to these social conditions there are also several community kitchens in the neighborhood where grandmothers and mothers take care of children.

More than 20 children eat in the community dining room, these young kids are called among them “brothers” are a big family that take care of each other. Brian and Araceli are from different families but they take care one of each other. On the right you can see a graphic representation that compares the number of people who rents contrasted with the amount of owners. This is a tribute to the present of the neighborhood and the future of “La boca”, an uncertain future conditioned by the gentrification of it.
