This stunning mural in Buenos Aires was painted by artist Martin Ron for the Meeting of Styles 2012. It features a giant turtle flying out of a hole in the wall.

"Using a marine turtle was ideal because it has the characteristics that I needed to achieve the effect of 3-D," said Martin. "The turtle is beautiful animal and has a lot of colours and textures. It's really interesting to paint. It's not an animal that is seen a lot and it seemed ideal to take it out of its normal context and put on it on the walls of Barracas."

The mural took Martin four days to complete and is painted on the wall of a factory building in Barracas.

"Each person can feel free to interpret it how they like. Perhaps my intention was to personify the imagination or the spirtual part of the person with the form of a turtle and a hole in the wall from which his imagination flies out," revealed Martin.
