Murals and such are not very abundant in Barcelona, but I have managed to find a few for you. In Gràcia, a facility owned by the council sports a delightful mural that depicts martians and mountains…
…while a street in El Raval pays tribute to the multiculturality of the neighborhood, and floating fruit and veg decorate the wall of a fresh market in Gràcia.
In the “and such” category, we might find these two examples above and below. The remnants of a coral red wall between two windows, which, although not artistic, I do really like for its texture (in the lower part of the wall) and colour, and thus have decided to include it in this post. Another is the imprint of paint balls in CMYK colours on a wall not far from the Cute Suite. What do you think, do you like them?
Back to more artistic examples, although this time as applied to the outer doors of two eateries in El Raval: the lovely lemon tree of restaurant L’Hortet and the mustard and ketchup on the doors at The Dog is Hot (great hot dogs, by the way!) both incorporate the architectural elements of the surface they were painted on, and as such are true to the definition of mural. But more importantly, I love them! Are there any murals and such where you live? Please tell me about them, or better yet, send me images!
