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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
