“Even the beautiful game can seem blandly homogeneous to those who watch every weekend of the year. But argentinian artista Martin Gordopelota is breaking the monotony by shifting our gaze to the brilliant idiosyncrasies of his neighborhood futbol. On canvases and walls all over Buenos Aires, he glorifies the longstanding traditions around local five-a-side: copious beers, halftime cigarettes, post-match asado, and occasional showcases of actual skill. For him, and many porteños, these games are therapy, and they are a lot less stressful tan worrying about Boca-River, or Messi´s trophy cabinet.“
