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.
