Ariel of Acebal: An Artist in Town

Under the dark sky of Argentina, the bus bounced along dirt backroads. We’d left Rosario an hour or so ago, and the distance had been filled mostly with visions of rural life.

As the Sold Mag Crew made its way around the festival, it was my mission to meet with Thomas Evans, better known as Detour.
