Graffiti in Barna Update

While I've been squeezing in all the playtime I can before summer draws to a close, my hard working father-in-law has been snapping photos of new graffiti as it appears in his Barcelona neighborhood. These pieces have all appeared over the last few months in Horta-Guinardo.

It's been exciting to see more graffiti than ever popping up on the streets of Seattle, and a few dedicated practitioners have been working like crazy recently to cover a lot of wall space with their good looking throw-ups and gorgeous pieces. Still, until there's a dedicated movement here to simply overwhelm the forces of reaction, we ain't never gonna see graffiti art with the depth and polish you can find every day in cultural hubs like New York, Mexico City, and the splendidly colorful Barcelona.
