Love story – graffiti style

C215 loves Alice – Carrer Tamarit

I can’t help it, I’m a hopeless romantic. Moved by stories of the “happily-ever-after”, empathetically gutted by those of heart break. Imagine my delight at finding evidence of a love story – graffiti style on the corner of Carrer Tamarit with Carrer Comte d’Urgell! Graphic declarations of admiration and love by C215 and Alice for one another on different sides of the same traffic light control box. Aaaah, how sweet!

Street art – RICE

Gagged – Carrer Joaquin Costa

There’s a new ‘kid’ in town. Or at least I think so, for I hadn’t seen any of his/her work before on the streets of Barcelona. All I know is that the artist is from Istres in France, and that I like it! So, without further ado: street art – RICE. Enjoy!

Street art applied to Barcelona street signs

Carrer Peu de la Creu

Happy Tuesday! In recent months a new form of  street art has appeared on Barcelona’s streets. They are humorous vignettes, carefully applied to road signs on various corners around town. It’s a sign!

Carrer Riera Alta

From now on, while walking around Barcelona’s beautiful streets, don’t just look at the gorgeous details on buildings, but check out the road signs around town and see if you can spot any of these vignettes…

I’m on the hunt for more of these fun examples of street art and will share them with you when I have gathered some more. Feel free to help me with this, so let me know if you find any around Barcelona, ok? Have a wonderfully humorous week!

It appears Barcelona has become the scenery for some cowboys and “indians” action, or at least…

Out there…

2 Apr

.

Hello! Did you survive the Easter weekend in one piece? I certainly hope so! Just a few weeks ago, I was out there… out there in the suburbs, off the beaten track, where Modernisme is nowhere to be found, and you can count the tourists on the fingers of one hand (should you spot any, that is). I found it refreshing: just a bunch of stark, utilitarian buildings, no frills whatsoever. At the most, some laundry hanging in the sun to dry as a touch of colour…

.

That, and the odd piece of street art, among which a ‘classical’ piece by El Pez and a gorgeous smoking guy (at the top) as well as the radiant heart above. I like it out there… I’ll be going back to explore some more, and of course I will share my findings with you.
