Street Art which looks like it could have been made out of ceramics has appeared in Barcelona. From Spanish artist Ana Barriga Oliva her style recreates that glazed pottery look. It’s something that you’d normally see on a mantelpiece or in your grans china cabinet.
That is except for the fact that with Ana Barriga it’s been given a street art makeover. Indeed the term ‘ceramicalistic’ seems to have been coined just for her. Her latest piece is in the La Sagrera area of Barcelona. She’s gone big for it. Recreating a tender scene between two porcelain children.
Ceramicalistic Street Art
The mural was inspired by some objects she found whilst hunting in the flea markets of Madrid. Discovering two pottery figures that created a casual but tender composition. Using a combination of oil painting, varnish and spray paint. She was able to recreate the distinctive look on a large scale.
From Cadiz in the south of Spain. Ana Barriga’s work in Barcelona has been created to co-incide with the closing of the TAPIA exhibition. A collective show at the B Murals Gallery in La Nau Bostik. Barriga had wanted to add a scene of love and fellowship to the area. Something that would ensure the exhibition finished on a high.
The work by Ana Barriga was made possible by a collaboration between the Sant Andreu district and Espacio30 with Barcelona’s City Council. It has been managed by B-Murals and local artist Sergi Bastida supported Ana.
