Barcelona Spain, April 2018,
pasteups, stickers, stencils and other little pieces of graffiti.
below: The green creature (with Ore on its tail) seems to want to eat the heart. The tiger appears on walls in many Spanish cities although sometimes he’s just a black and white head. He’s the creation of Bloo. Last, an orange crab with eye lashes on one eye.
below: RAF Urban, young boy
below: Another face, this time a woman looking up. She’s not quite obscured by the paint around her.
below: “Lo importante esta en tu cabeza” on empty cans. As it turns out, this the name of an album by the group La Gran Orquesta Republicana. Rough translation is: The important is in your head.
below: More cans on walls. This time they say “mensajes de amor en tiemps de guerra, mensajes de paz con la mente guerrera”. [messages of love in times of war, messages of peace with the warrior mind]. This can art is the work of an anonymous couple. Many examples of their work can be seen on instagram with the hashtag #llaunesbcn
below: Funny Bone and a little hairy chested, hat wearing, tattooed fellow with love on his tummy (or lower).
below: Güelcom was an Argentinian movie, a romcom from 2011. Because of my poor Spanish as well as the rip in the paper, I can’t tell what the second word is.
below: A black and white paste up.
below: Mowcka “uniendo tus partes” and others
below: Very, very with symmetry, as a red rose lies on the sidewalk.
below: Smile! Anthropomorphic rabbit photographer in blue
… and red
below: somiatruites, Catalan for daydreamer
below: Utility box. JERC = Joventuts d’Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya (Young Republican Left of Catalonia). They support independence for Catalonia which is the part of Spain that includes Barcelona.
below: The Hulk. Even he is locked out.
below: Watering can and plant pot faces.
below: Another collection of small paste ups on a wall. There’s that tiger again. A blue unicorn and a very large insect share the upper left corner. That little black and white figure in the bottom left is a flying peanut, a character by Hadsawit that really gets around.
below: The Raven, or at least a large black bird
