1404. Jardins de les Tres Xemeneies, Barcelona (1)

This is the first of my posts from an Easter trip to Barcelona with my daughter. Although it was not a street art hunting break, I managed to come across some great spots thanks entirely to the great advice and help from Lewis Duncan, author of the excellent ‘No Grey Walls‘ WordPress site, to whom I am indebted.

I do not pretend to know anything about the artists in this collaboration and Lewis writes much more authoritatively about this piece in his own recent post about it, so I will direct you there for more detailed information. Instead I will leave you with some pretty pictures to look at. If I knew this spot better, I would know to come at a different time of day, as the sun was behind the wall making photography a little challenging.

The collaboration really is a treat, and one of the best pieces I saw in Barcelona – I’m just so glad that I timed my visit to perfection.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.

    1. Always a pleasure. I enjoy your blog a lot. It seems plenty of people post street images, but there are not many who offer critiques and stories to go with them. I started doing this to help others understand a little bit more about the Bristol scene, because when I started out it was so hard to find out anything.

      1. Pictures tell a lot and can be the most effective thing in some cases but when there is a back story about the piece or maybe about the adventure to find the piece it just gives that little more I feel!
