Hipster girl – Carrer Grunyi
Another Friday has rocked up, and after a busy week, I am ready to bring on the weekend! Guess you are too? What are your plans? I am starting off with a sketching session this evening at 7 pm (at Caravelle, in case you’d like to join in), during which I will be doing my best to create portraits of my fellow sketchers…
Character study – Carrer Honduras
I’ll probably start off with something like this (above) and hopefully progress to something a little more defined.
Triplets – Carrer Honduras
Not sure I’ll manage anything good, such as these handsome fellas, on the walls of a former factory near Clot, which now functions as a cultural centre, but I will try my best.
The brother – Carrer Honduras
The older guy – Carrer Astùries
I certainly don’t expect to produce anything as picture perfect as this older guy, tucked behind a window grille in Gràcia, but wouldn’t mind being able to create a minimalist portrait as funky as the one below. As long as it was a good likeness. Who knows? I just hope I will be inspired!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Minimalist – Rambla de Guipuscoa
C215 loves Alice – Carrer Tamarit
I can’t help it, I’m a hopeless romantic. Moved by stories of the “happily-ever-after”, empathetically gutted by those of heart break. Imagine my delight at finding evidence of a love story – graffiti style on the corner of Career Tamarit with Carrer Comte d’Urgell! Graphic declarations of admiration and love by C215 and Alice for one another different sides of the same traffic light control box. Aaaah, how sweet!
Alice loves C215 – Carrer Tamarit
Gagged – Carrer Joaquin Costa
There’s a new ‘kid’ in town. Or at least I think so, for I hadn’t seen any of his/her work before on the streets of Barcelona. All I know is that the artist is from Istres in France, and that I like it! So, without further ado: street art – RICE. Enjoy!
Popsicle – Carrer Joaquin Costa
Whitney – Carrer Petritxol
Little girl – Carrer Hospital
Bowie girl – Carrer Petritxol
Carrer Peu de la Creu
Happy Tuesday! In recent months a new form of street art has appeared on Barcelona’s streets. They are humorous vignettes, carefully applied to road signs on various corners around town. It’s a sign!
Carrer Riera Alta
From now on, while walking around Barcelona’s beautiful streets, don’t just look at the gorgeous details on buildings, but check out the road signs around town and see if you can spot any of these vignettes…
Plaça Vila de Gràcia
I’m on the hunt for more of these fun examples of street art and will share them with you when I have gathered some more. Feel free to help me with this, so let me know if you find any around Barcelona, ok? Have a wonderfully humorous week!
Carrer Antic de Sant Joan
It’s the weekend, and after a couple of days of cooler temperatures and lots of rain, the sun is out, so it is time to shimmer our way into the weekend.
Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes
Just look around you, and you’ll find buildings and structures doing just that around Barcelona. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
At the exit of the Passeig de Gràcia metro station on Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes you can find art on every step at the moment. Be sure to have a look, for I’m not sure how long it will be there for…
It appears Barcelona has become the scenery for some cowboys and “indians” action, or at least…
Carrer Joaquin Costa
… thanks to local graffiti artists Francisco de Pàjaro, here come the “indians”! ;)
Plaça del Mar
Happy Monday! Every week is like a new game on a board, where Mondays are square one, and we hop from one space on the board to the next, squares + circles, until we arrive at Sunday… This thought came to me while I spotted these decorative elements on several of Barcelona’s buildings, so I thought I’d share them with you today.
Plaça del Mar
Can you imagine playing hop-scotch on the walls of this building in the Born? Or moving checker pieces on the doors of the Santa Maria del mar?
Santa Maria del Mar
Plaça Sant Miquel
The squares + circles on the City Hall building on Plaça de Sant Miquel would make for a wonderful playground to hop from one square to the next, or throw balls into the circles, don’t you think? How about we make this week into a game? It sounds more fun that way, doesn’t it? In any case, and whether you are game or not, have a wonderful week, everyone!
