The Takeover Barcelona

Well I was hoping to be slightly more prolific with this blog but seeing as this is my first post in 3 months I’m going to have to claim some sort of writers block as my excuse! Or the summer heat here making me a little more dopey than usual.

Now that my excuses are out of the way lets get down to business. This weekend in Barcelona saw the innaugral ‘Takeover’ event which in the words of the organisers… “Is a street art event that brings together Barcelona and Berlin based artists to takeover an urban space and transform it into an urban oasis”

The event was held at the Nau Bostik in the city’s La Sagrera district. The Nau Bostik is a former glue factory which now houses a myriad of local events from street art to photography shows to food truck and music shows.



The takeover brought together some of Barcelona’s finest artists along with a smattering of artists from Berlin to create a truly unique event allowing various artists to collaborate on pieces that might not have been possible in a normal day to day setting.

The art created this weekend will be on show at Nau Bostik for a extended period of time allowing plenty of street art fans to witness the fruits of what was a memorable experience for the artists involved.

Here’s hoping to more ‘Takeovers’ in the future.
