Shutter Art – Barcelona – Spain
It dosnt matter which major city you travel too in the world, they all have problems with graffiti. And come sunset the stores all get hoarded up with shutters turning the atmosphere in the streets more sinister.
On a recent trip to Barcelona however i was really impressed how they were conquering both these problems.It seems that the retailers in the old parts of the city have teamed up with graffiti artists to decorate their shutters to great effect. Now wandering down the stunning narrow lanes after dark is like taking a walking art tour. The quality of the work is really impressive, brining the stores to life and advertising their wears in a really urban modern way.
Other cities should take note.
