Barcelona : The Wall of Fame

The 1 minute Wall of Fame by Street Art Mecca from justininbcn on Vimeo.


The Wall is located in Born, Barcelona, and is a unique and diverse collection of the current crop of street artists. It is constantly changing and evolving. Not all Barcelona street artists are here but it's a good example of the type of art you'll find dotted around the streets.

Barcelona needs more places like this. Everywhere else has been buffed or cleaned up.

Enzo and Nio / Street Art Mecca Interview


Katrine Knauer caught up with NY street artists Enzo&Nio.

Q: Where are you from and is that influential in your art?

EL ARTE ES BASURA
Street Art Mecca featured artist No.4: Francisco de Pajaro

Street Art Mecca presents Art is Trash from justininbcn on Vimeo.


When I went to meet Francisco de Pajaro I wanted to talk politics. He didn’t. I had my list of deep meaningful questions but he didn’t want to answer them. Instead he spoke about the absurdity in society, our hideous selfishness, our capacity for self destruction and our ridiculous behaviour towards weaknesses.

MINI GUIDE: Vegan Bunnies
February Issue


Once there was a girl. She traveled over the mountains and across the ocean to this seaside city, where she crossed paths with a bunny. Soon, they were inseparable. The bunny grabbed the girl’s heart and expanded her thoughts. She changed the girl’s direction and the bunny became the symbol of her newfound respect for all beings.

STREET ART MECCA
Site launched January 2014

Street Art Mecca is based in Barcelona but primarily interested in the relevance of street art in global culture. We are featuring artists who are interacting with their environment, social and political circumstances and detailing the reaction it creates in their societies.

The long term objective is to create a network of street artists who can link to each other and to participate in a feature length documentary with similar themes.

The site has just launched and currently features artist Jimmy C.
