More thought provoking wall art from Barcelona

This photo kind of dates itself, doesn’t it:

photo of wall art in Barcelona from 2004 "Phones are not liberty"

I took it on a vacation back in 2004. The cell phone was cutting edge at the time. But the point of the art is what’s stayed in my mind over the years. For a long time I agreed, but over the past few years, I’ve begun to change my thinking Smart phones can be a devastating tool in fighting for freedom.

I swear, Barcelona has some of the BEST street art I’ve ever seen. It’s mad cap, brilliant and in your face!

Photo of street art in Barcelona 2004

When I was in Barcelona in 2004, I spent quite a bit of time wandering around photographing some of it. Yes, I know, not the usual touristy thing to do, but wholly mackeral it’s worth a trip just for that alone. I should crowd fund another trip back to take follow up photos. I could do an entire book just on the art I saw. The above photo is one of my favourites. I call it “Space Cats from Hell”. I think they’re cats … maybe they aren’t.  But they look like cats to me so … a day late but in honour of International Cat Day yesterday. Enjoy.
