At dusk, when the pace of daily life comes to a halt, Barcelona’s lower their shutters. From this simple gesture, a spectacular outdoor art exhibition is born which keeps the nocturnal passers-by company, giving them stories full of colour.
Urban Art has multiple forms and if sometimes it is seen as an act of vandalism, most of the time its practice is constructive for the environment from an artistic and socio-cultural point of view and those who do it are usually notable artists.
Barcelona has the privilege of having a vast art gallery, open to its community and guests. A unique and tremendous museum presented to all who pass through its streets. When the city is asleep and life is on pause, we let a bit of poetry come into our lives.
