A new street art form? Wallpapered!

Window 1 – Carrer Joaquin Costa

I believe a new street art form has made an appearance on Barcelona’s streets, for I have discovered a couple of places that have been wallpapered! Take these two neighboring shop windows on Carrer Joaquin Costa, all done up in yellow leopard print and apparently singing a little ditty. Rather fetching, right?

Phone booths – Carrer de l’Or

And how about these completely wallpapered twin phone booths in Gràcia? Certainly looking much more interesting in yellow and black, and offering more privacy to their users (were it not that the phones are broken). In case someone missed the point of their ‘decorator’, one of the sides of this delightful example of street art clearly indicates that “this space is declared MINE”. Certainly done in a much nicer way than many of the tags around town, don’t you agree?

The bug-eyed guy – Carrer Joaquin Costa

There once lived a bug-eyed guy on Carrer Joaquin Costa (he sold delicious wines to a faithful clientele) who had a lightbulb moment…

… he thought it would be a good idea to ask his friend on Carrer Robí to take good care of all the lightbulb flowers so they could bloom and disperse into the wind…

… for he was hoping they would reach the owl on Passeig de Sant Joan, perched high above the ground, and let him know, that across town, somebody cared about her.

There are days when certain colours remind me of food. Custard, citrus and vanilla, for example.
