Art at the entrance

Street artists Kram & Owen paint building entrance in Barcelona

It’s quite common to spot painted cars at the entrance of residential buildings, in Barcelona, indicating where the entry to the car park is. But none are quite like the ones I am sharing with you today.

At a building on Carrer Manso, the walls at the entrance have been given a generous dose of marvelousness by street artists Kram & Owen.  Delightful colours, a multitude of circles and spheres, all with generous pops of red, a postman and a swanky vintage car… not a bad thing to come home to art at the entrance every day, right?

Squares + circles

Squares + circles in Barcelona's decorative elements

Plaça del Mar

Happy Monday! Every week is  like a new game on a board, where Mondays are square one, and we hop from one space on the board to the next, squares + circles, until we arrive at Sunday… This thought came to me while I spotted these decorative elements on several of Barcelona’s buildings, so I thought I’d share them with you today.

Plaça del Mar

Can you imagine playing hop-scotch on the walls of this building in the Born? Or moving checker pieces on the doors of the Santa Maria del mar?

Plaça Sant Miquel

The squares + circles on the City Hall building on Plaça de Sant Miquel would make for a wonderful playground to hop from one square to the next, or throw balls into the circles, don’t you think? How about we make this week into a game? It sounds more fun that way, doesn’t it? In any case, and whether you are game or not, have a wonderful week, everyone!

If you look closely enough while on your daily to-ing and fro-ing you might find some things are round about town, just like these…

Pavement donuts – Carrer Villarroel

Some people go round and round in circles (and heaven knows that I have done the same sometimes) while others go about life in a slightly straighter line… While meandering through Barcelona (that’s the way I roll), I have been seeing circles lately. Everywhere!
