GR170 – Suburban Folk

After work tonight I took a wander down to the Montana Gallery Barcelona to check out the GR170 exhibition titled ‘Suburban Folk’

GR170’s work is usually not found on the streets of Barcelona (save for a recent intervention at Arnau Gallery) and is more often found in the outskirts of the city, hidden away in abandoned factories and buildings. I’m guessing the little wooden truck that was part of the exhibition was a nod to this…

The exhibition featured plenty of GR170’s usual colourful ‘street’ characters, painted on metal sheeting and riveted together to make one big piece (which makes for something a bit different to the usual canvas work) and also some really interesting ceramic sculptures that really added an extra dimension to what is an excellent show.

If you are in Barcelona be sure to head to the Montana Gallery and check it out! The show runs until the 10th February.
