It’s a zoo out there!

Carrer del Carme

I’ve been spotting a lot of animals on the streets lately, and it’s almost like the streets are turning into a zoo. Would you like to check these animals out with me? Come along!

Some of the animals come in paper form, and in colour, like the pretty owl and the mouse-chasing dragon above, and others are simple lines, in monochrome, like the cat by Chanoir, below.

Carrer Riera Baixa

More monochrome simple lines by the also famous Miss Van (above), and of a cat with its back to the viewers (below) by an anonymous artist.

Ronda de Sant Antoni

The anxious donkey (above) that is announcing / denouncing being brain washed, is by Francisco de Pájaro, but I don’t know who the nasty-looking white rabbit (below) is by. No doubt I’ll find out sooner or later though, because these rabbits are appearing all over Barcelona.

Carrer dels Mirallers

No zoo would be complete without a hippo, and here it is! Looking a little anxious and gummie on a blind in Carrer Mirallers. A blown up photo of a wild boar with massive tusks graces a blank wall on Carrer Torres i Amat. I quite like it, although it could do with a bit of colourful vegetation around it, instead of the random tags that decorate it now.

Carrer Riera Baixa

Birds are also quite common in this graffiti zoo. A very tired and baggy-eyed one (below) and a yellow pigeon (above), the outline of  which appears to have been done with one swift press of the spray nozzle. Follow its lines, and you’ll see what I mean.

Tomorrow I’ll show you some examples of geometry. See you then?
