Street art in Barcelona

While I was not impressed by contemporary art at the museum, I was by street art that can be found all through the town. Here are a few examples:

Liebe Vero,
da kann man sich ja fast einen Museumsbesuch sparen. So viel kreative Kunst! Du hast sicher viel Spaß in Barcelona gehabt, man sieht es an Deinen Fotos. Es scheint ja auch eine sehr schöne Stadt zu sein. Ich kenne leider nur Andalusien. Aber was nicht ist, kann ja noch werden.
Lieber Gruß vom Wurzerl

I would be with you about the Vero. I am not into contemporary art. Oh, maybe there is some I wouldn't mind to see but I guess my leanings are toward the more traditional view. Love the street art you have shown. I am enjoying your tour through barcelona. It is always a surprise to see the big palms growing in cities. We have to go way south of here to see such things. A friend of mine is mourning the demise of her Madagascar Palm that stood 7 feet tall. She thought of it as a pet they had had it so long. It was beautiful.

Great photos; in some cities this would be called graffiti and quickly painted over or removed, unfortunately. Looking forward to seeing more.

Yes, sometimes the street art can be much more interested!
