Street Art on Doors: Face - Barri Gotic, Barcelona

Street Art on Doors: Face - Barri Gotic, Barcelona [enlarge]

While walking along the streets of Barri Gotic in Barcelona and looking for some nice graffiti to photograph for a client, I found some curious artwork, or at least some clotted surfaces with beautiful texture where different manifestations of street art blend in some kind of collective collage. You could say this face, with the silent-movie magnetic look, tries to hypnotize the curious passerby, from the bottom of a dead alley into some parallel world inside the wood. As to the annoying locksmith sticker below, they are omnipresent in every corner of the city. I took the time to erase the phone number.

What a stupid place to put a sticker! Well done on defacing it.

Love the shot :-)

Great graffiti art! Very unique! So you erased the phone number of my side business which I just set up in Barcelona?

It is a pleasure to visit Barcelona - the land of my ancestors - through yours eyes. Eyes of photographer, but also of someone who loves his city.

This is really weird and I really like it! The face just pulls you in and you want to know more - who is she? What does she want? Enticing, alluring, dangerous?

Great shot, Carlos!

Looking into an alluring future, where one doesn't need a locksmith, as there won't be any doors to hide life behind.
Would like to see happyness for those eyes to see.
