he graffiti photographed in this book are a privileged testimony of
Barcelona at the beginning of the 21st century and were made by the
most inspired and radical street artists; graffiti artists who have
made names for themselves in this city and are now internationally
The ephemeral wall-canvases of a vibrant Barcelona in constant
architectural redesign have summoned graffiti artists from around the
world to create works of powerful form and colour, a transformation
which has resulted in the enjoyment of the ordinary citizen and
condemnation from the local administration.
As an author, I thank the publisher for the privilege of republishing
this new version of Barcelona Graffiti, for which I have chosen the
graphic works of greatest impact and visual interest. As a
photographer, I've insured that these collected samples cover the
range of creative vitality of this city which astonishes the world by
being a Mecca for graffiti and street art in general. I hope the
selection will please everyone...
