A few weeks ago in my local supermarket I picked up peat/compost whatever you call it to repot my plants and a lucky bamboo for no other reason than it looked nice! (more…)

Barcelona Street Art AKA Graffiti

Barcelona has a reputation of being hip. One of the cities to visit if traveling in Europe. There’s a bit of something for everyone.

It’s also a city that has a reputation for street art. Especially the graffiti kind. There are a lot of crap tags, but equally there’s a lot of great art work sprayed on the walls. The best pieces get respect and can be around untouched for months. The city’s even dedicated a walls solo for graffiti (the most popular is near Placa Espanya behind the Hilton Hotel). It’s not usual for shops ask graffiti artists to commission pieces on their shutters to avoid getting tagged and there’s always a cheeky piece popping up where you least expect it. These are what I’ve stubbled across out and about in the last few months.
