1830. Barcelona

There are so many shutters in Barcelona. Shutters on shops and shutters on the entrances to apartment parking lots. There is also a huge graffiti/street art culture. Put the two things together and you get an awful lot of sprayed shutters…some much better-looking than others. This is one I took a bit of a shine to.

It is by Joel Aroyo, who I think sprays rather a lot of shutters and I would guess many of them commissions. The Beetle car is iconic and this piece reflects that status. Overall a nice shutter.

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. Nice find! Yeah a lot of artists paint these as commission works. Good steady income if you do even just 2-3 a month. Joel has what feels like millions of them all over the city. He’s a good dude as well.
