Help fund a street art exhibition in Barcelona

25 Aug

MBPA (Mapping Barcelona Public Art) is raising funds to hold an exhibition showcasing Barcelona’s transient street art.

The event will map Barcelona’s street art according to Barrio, bringing together the artists and residents who create the distinctive character and mood which marks each neighborhood in Barcelona.

The exhibition titled Las Calles Hablan (The Streets Talk) is scheduled for the end of October but before that can happen, MBPA faces a huge challenge. It needs to raise 2,500 dollars by September 19th or the event won’t happen. If you believe in street art and would like to support this noncommercial art form, visit their funding page on kickstarter, read more, and help them out if you can.

Lets meet the characters behind the art.

    We walked right by this last night and thought it was stunning. Happy to see they’ve met their kickstarter goal and can’t wait to check this one out!

      This building is my favorite squat mural. The best part is, the people of La Carbonara (the squat) claim it as a collective achievement. MBPA are still about a 1,000 dollars away from their funding goal, so keep spreading the word!

    I read now your post about Monica del Raval. She is really shocking. Over the years, the Raval has different personages. If you’re interested in, search for “La Monyos”.

      Thanks for the information on La Monyos, she is a lot like a present day woman I know.
