When traveling, all the guidebooks will tell you to go to this museum, then go to that gallery and see this piece of art. Honestly, after day upon day of standing in lines, spending tons of money, battling crowds, looking at masterpiece after masterpiece, I start to go cross-eyed and grumpy. I far more prefer exploring neighborhoods and getting out of the usual tourist traps. Exploring a vast array of street art as you wander down unknown streets is way more exciting to me than being all stuffed up in a museum. Plus, when the weather is as awesome as it was when we were in Spain, who wants to be inside?
Here are a collection of pictures I took of graffiti in Barcelona. My favorite is that very dapper little daschund and I love the texture created the layered levels of various pasted pictures, stencils, and tags.
