Isn’t this week going quickly? Maybe it’s just my perception, but I guess it must be a result of the holiday we had on Tuesday… Anyway, I thought it would be nice to share some stencil graffiti with you today, and I have found some pretty cool examples. Here goes…
The style of the above one reminds me of Banksy, but I’m not sure that it is actually by this great graffiti artist. The snail (below, and also above) is appearing everywhere and encourages us to dream.
On Carrer Riera Baixa I found 4 different stencils on one door (!) and all are pretty cool. I guess we all recognise Yoda (from the Star Wars films) above, don’t we? Below, some butterflies – simple but very effective, and cute.
I think the above stencil artist is not a fan of French Bulldogs… what do you think? Did you notice the blue butterfly?
Below a gorgeous stencil of 2 African guys. There are several around town – this one the nicest I’ve seen, so far.
Around the corner from the Cute Suite, but also in many other places around Barcelona, you can find this famous signature (above). Rather cheeky, but I like the irony of it.
Further ‘down’ in el Raval, on the blind of a hip and happening gallery, the stencilled face of Mr Moustache (or so I’ve called him). Good stuff, in my opinion.
But the one I really like, and which is probably the least complicated of all to make, is this ‘doily’ that I found on Carrer Junta de Comerç. I love it!
Another black + white stencil. It’s a lot cruder in style than the above examples, but because it has been applied onto a multicoloured background, it stands out very nicely, so brownie points for the selection of the spot!
And on the blind next to the money-waving Chinese guys, these two gorgeous examples: the leopard and the African child, stars included. My favourites among this selection.
Did you like them? I’d love to know! So don’t be shy, and drop me a line in the comments, or by email (address on the contact page).
