In this People On The Grid, we get to know Alexia Chellun, a singer-songwriter who is launching her new album called ‘Open’. With her soothing and relaxing voice, she performs for us acoustic versions of her latest songs: “All That Remains”, “Open” and “Take Your Destiny”.
It’s official: with so many great artists in Barcelona, the artwork can no longer be contained within museums, and has started to flow throughout the streets. Street artists have created hundreds of masterpieces that are waiting to be discovered around every corner of the city.

The streets have become a canvas for the people of Barcelona, freely expressing their dissatisfactions, their points of pride, or anything else which may come to mind.
