Rogelio Polesello

Altman Constructions we like to bring together a range of artists to collaborate on our projects as we think aesthetics and culture are essential.
For the Altman Eco Office we invited world renowned artist Rogelio Polesello to design a mural for the frontage of the building. The mural is 40 meters high and will be one of the tallest walls in the city, making an undoubtedly important contribution to the cultural heritage of Buenos Aires.
Rogelio Polesello
Born 1939, Buenos Aires.
