Translated from Spanish lata means tin. And Barcelona has a lot of this ‘tins’ art. You can find them mainly in the Gotic, Born, Raval and Poble Nou neighbourhoods in the small, not too crowded streets, hidden under balconies, scaffoldings and sheds. What i love about them is that they kind of invite you to be curious, look for them around the city and pay attention to the little details.
This post is to show you my ‘collection’ so far. I am sure there are so many more of them waiting to be discovered and I can assure you, I keep looking.
Barcelona is an amazing city with beautiful and unique architecture. Seriously, there is not a single building that I don’t like or I’m not amazed by. You have Gaudi and Miro‘s work almost everywhere, which makes Barcelona even more interesting and attractive, but for this post I’ll guide your attention to Barcelona’s street art. You’ll need a good eye for the detail and plenty of free time to explore the city, but you’ll definitely find art worth seeing. May be it’s not for everyone, may be someone will say that it’s just stupid drawings or ugly scribbles, but it expresses opinion, ideas, personality and for me it’s truly inspiring. How can street art inspire an interior design student? You’ll see in my future posts.
