New mural by Ana Barriga for B-Murals

At the end of February, our friends from B-Murals presented a new mural by the Spanish Ana Barriga as the closing of their collective exhibition Tàpia. This show, curated by Axel Void, presents the works of 24 national and international artists representing the neo-muralism movement, a branch of urban art offen associated with figurative and contemporary realism.

This mural by Ana Barriga was painted in Espacio30 in La Sagrera district. It represents two porcelain objects found by the artist herself in a second hand markets like El Rastro in Madrid where she lives. Using different techniques (spray, acrylic, oil) and vivid colors, Ana spreads here a universal message of love and fraternity in her unique “trash-pop” style. We’re happy to present you some photos of the mural and a video of the process, until we can discover it in real life as soon as the streets are ours again.

New mural by Monkeybird in Guzzo

In January of this year, we had the honor to welcome and curate the first mural in Spain of the French duo Monkeybird. The two artists based in Paris are specialized in large scale stencils which they all cut and produce manually (no machine-cut stencil). They spent three days to paint this new permanent mural which incorporates a monkey and a humanoid bird representing “the two faces of humanity; the monkey is the realistic face and the bird is the dreamer”. Stencil art to the fullest!

Here are for you some photos and a video of the process shot by Agustina Arán. You can also go and admire it directly at Guzzo – Plaza Comercial 10, Barcelona.
