Barcelona Graffiti

A recent trip to Barcelona reignited a love of graffiti, where graffiti has been legalised at some point. Things I love: There is always a fervent minimalism (speed of execution) which creates immediate and highly graphic results. I love the aggressive primal undertones, suggesting correspondences with early cave murals, and the non naturalistic art from non western cultures - central and South America especially. African also - foremost in my mind is the work of artist Norman Catherine.
