Carrer Ersame Janer

If you look carefully around Barcelona, you’ll be able to see evidence that Rusty was here… for he has left his mark on various buildings in many ways, but always in the marked colour scheme that is so obviously his. Here, let me show you…

Carrer Riera Alta

Be it in modern buildings, or in more traditional ones, Rusty will use metal, oxidised to the perfect tone, panes of glass that differ in shade depending on the direction of the sun…

… or he’ll use brick, both in the rough version and the smooth, to leave his mark.

Carrer Rocafort

As is evident from the entrances to these parking spaces, Rusty is quite adept with a paint brush!

Carrer Joaquim Costa

Until you take a good look around, you don’t realise just how influential Rusty really is! One of the local banks has adopted his colour, so I suspect he has a fair share in their stocks. But also he must be quite chummy with the constructors of Barcelona’s buildings, for even the sgraffito on some have been applied in his tones!

Versatile as few are, and keeping up with the times, Rusty has brought his influence on many. Even on local graffiti artists, as well as the immigrant population. Wow, you can really tell that Rusty was here…
