Barcelona Street Artist: Living Statue

Street Artist at Las Ramblas de Barcelona: Living Statue

This Barcelona street artist, posing as a living statue is not giving the serious, stern, hardened by a thousand battles kind of look, oh no, he was really fed up with my pictures.

Minutes later and without previous warning, he turned his back on me and sat down for his lunch break. The irascible mood perfectly matches the character though.

As you know there are many living statues like this along Las Ramblas, and some of them have been captured in my previous posts and pictures.

      I first saw these living statues in New Orleans 10 years ago. They tended to favor silver. I think this bronzed guy looks even more realistic as a statue.

    2. All of the posing street artists look so statuesque! If I were there I'd have to step closer to try to figure out just how they do it????

      Thanks for sharing!

    3. WOW! Just like a bronze statue. Fantastic.

    4. It's his shoes that gives the game away. If he only had worn cowboy boots.

    5. The tree in the background - do you know what type it is? Is it a London plane? They are the street trees we have in Sydney, and I believe are very popular in many places for their hardiness. Many people complain about them here - niot native, and those with allergies don't like them in sprongtime, I believe.

      I love them - they are very shade-giving.
