Sagieart – Wednesday wall #56

Swedish artist Sagieart is this week's Wednesday wall feature. Unfortunately I only have one piece to share and not two. The reason for that? The local council spending tax payers money to buff one of his pieces that was painted at a legal spot. What's the point of legal spots if the authorities still buff... Continue Reading →

Sledone – Wednesday wall #55

Bristolian artist Sledone recently paid a little visit to Barcelona. Like so many other artists Sledone found the time to paint a couple of pieces whilst on 'holiday'. Do artists actually holiday properly? Or does every trip end up with at least one spray somewhere!? Sledone actually painted twice whilst here, or twice that I... Continue Reading →

El Joel & Aruma – Wednesday wall #54

El Joel and Aruma are the feature for this week's Wednesday wall. This is my first time ever writing about Aruma but El Joel I had the pleasure of interviewing earlier this year. This collaborative piece was created on one of the few remaining legal walls left in the city. The mayor might state in... Continue Reading →

Marta Antares – Wednesday wall #53

Marta Antares is part of a crop of new young artists appearing on the streets of Barcelona. I don't want to say there is a passing of the torch situation going on right now. However, the vast majority of the artists I was seeing when I moved here have shifted to studio/larger mural work only.... Continue Reading →

Wednesday wall #52

It's been too long since I've done a Wednesday wall. I actually just checked and incredibly I haven't done one since March! That is some shoddy work on my part! Let's rectify that unacceptable effort with this banger from Hech Uno. Hech is part of the CE2 Crew and hails from Calpulalpan in Mexico. As with... Continue Reading →

Wednesday wall #51

French artist Dogz has been on a bit of a tear in Barcelona recently. I assume he is relatively new to the city as I don't remember seeing his work before the start of the year. By my count he has done 14 walls since February. Talk about throwing yourself into the scene! This particular piece is... Continue Reading →

Wednesday wall #50

I have very little clue where Host is from (Brazil or Portugal is my best guess) but I've been seeing his work on the streets for a minute now. I wouldn't say he was prolific so I'm not 100% sure if he is based here full time or not. Anyway there is something about Host's... Continue Reading →

Wednesday wall #49

I think this week's Wednesday wall is maybe cheating a little bit. It's not quite a wall for a start, as it's a three piece door way. Close enough though right?! And it's on the street so I'm pretty sure that it falls under whatever rules I gave this column 49 weeks ago. No I'm... Continue Reading →

Wednesday wall #48 No Borders Special

Two weekends ago saw a painting ´jam´held in Barcelona to help raise awareness for No Borders Refugees.  As per the organisations Instagram page - NO BORDERS was created to raise awareness about the refugees. To demand their acceptance, and to raise funds through debates, art and documentaries. Arnau Gallery The guys behind Street art BCN were... Continue Reading →

Wednesday wall #47

Wednesday wall with a slight difference this week. That slight difference being that this wall has wheels and isn´t really a wall! I´ve told you all before that I am a total sucker for street art/graffiti on trucks and vans. Well, Mexican artist Berol has absolutely nailed this three sided piece on a truck that I...
