Glorious Discoveries

The wonderful thing about Barcelona
is just how inspirational it can be. All
you have to do is look that little bit
harder. Look up, look down and look
all around. You'll be amazed at what
wonderful discoveries you'll make everyday.

Work in progress...

A little sneaky peek at the work in progress for my up and coming exhibition. I'm pretty excited as it's my first exhibition here in Barcelona. It's a beautiful poetic glimpse at snippets of everything and anything, bits and pieces, this and that, all magpie-like. A collage of stuff found, grafitti in the streets, rubbish on the floor, gems bought from Encants. An indulgent bringing together of everything that makes me go "ooooooh" and "ah".

People of the Barrio

Today wandering about the Born Barrio in Barcelona I stumbled across some great street art. I love the motivation that drives an artist to get their work seen and out there. Motivation enough to think outside of the normal gallery setting. Barcelona is a wonderful place for public art, accessible to all and none of that highbrow crap that intimidates most without an art training. This is a great example of art for everyone- inspired by the people of the barrio and given back to the people of the barrio. Wonderful. Put a smile on my face.
