From March 5 to 10, 2019, at the initiative of the Mar del Plata artists Julian Roura and Lucho Gallesese, the "FIRST INTERNATIONAL URBAN ART FESTIVAL OF INSTINCT" was held in the city of Mar del Plata, Argentina. 

It was developed on the abandoned railway tracks located between Guido and Funes streets, covering the works of artists from Brown street to Alvarado street. 

Among others, Filite and Agnaldo Mirage from Brazil, Fósil from Mexico, Cristina Llurat from Spain, Harry from Bolivia, Sergio Jara from Paraguay, Hallo from Chile, Lucas Quinto from the City of Buenos Aires, Natalio Cees from Mendoza, Paolo Porcel from Córdoba participated. , Chungo Trash from Bahía Blanca, Lisandro Urtiaga from Santa Fe. 

When I realized that it was 4 years since this meeting, I went to the place and I was able to start photographically documenting what has still survived with the intention of making it known to the world. 

I am truly amazed at the quality and diversity of the works of art that were captured there with so much effort despite the inexorable passage of time and the evident lack of care. 

This fantastic set of art made shortly before the Pandemic, today after it and almost immune to it questions us from the walls as if wondering who or what will save us considering that we have already become part of what we can call "MEMORY OF ART". URBAN".
