THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BARCELONA STREET ART AND GRAFFITI ART IN SPAIN

We could write a thesis about how beautiful the streets of Barcelona are. How the street art in this city brings the town to life. But we’re not going to because you can read about that anywhere. Instead we’re just going to list some killer artists that you should hunt down if you’re visiting or if you live here!

Artists listed in no particular order, not alphabetical because we’re lazy and not by ego because we’re not rude. Click on their name to visit their personal sites.

H101

You don’t know symetry until you see hcientouno’s work. If you see a shop in Barcelona that is closed you’ll be glad it’s closed if the shutters are painted by him.
