Barcelona is full of art, and when I say full I mean really full ! It is everywhere you see, old art and new art.
I think you need a life time of holidays to see all the art in Barcelona. But pictures say more than words, right , so here we go.
LIFE STREET ART, PEOPLE LOOKING LIKE STATUES CAN BE SEEN ALL OVER BARCELONA
THESE TWO WORKS I FOUND IN A FORGOTTEN CORNER ON THE STREET
THIS PAINTING OF A TREE WAS IN A VERY SMALL SHOP, I WAS AMAZED WHEN I SAW IT AND IT WAS REALLY HUGE, SOMETHING FOR A HOUSE WITH BIG BARE WALLS
THIS IS THE WORK OF THE FAMOUS GAUDI, I HAVE DECIDED TO DO A WHOLE BLOGPOST ON GAUDI AS IT IS TOO MUCH TO INCLUDE THE WORK OF GAUDI IN THIS BLOGPOST ON ART
WHAT A PITY SOMEONE SPOILED IT WITH GRAFITTI !
When we were unable to visit the Picasso museum we found the museum of contempory art nearby and what a pleasant surprise it was !!!!
The following pictures were all taken there.
THESE STATUES WERE MADE OF COPPER BUT THEY LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE MADE OF WOOD
HERE YOU CAN SEE THE LIVE MODEL, THE CLAY MODEL AND THE END PRODUCT IN COPPER AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST THE ARTIST HIMSELF RICHARD MACDONALD.
The following works are from many different artists but also in the museum of contempory art.
ALL THE PHOTO’S YOU MAY THINK ARE PHOTO’S ARE IN FACT PAINTINGS !!!!!
