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.
On the neighbourhood block, the formal rules of art can be put aside, and each artist can express their creativity as boldly and unabashedly as they desire. While the museum or gallery may be reserved for the elite, this hasn’t stopped the disenfranchised and countercultural people of Barcelona from painting this city in their unique style. 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.
