Kitsch Art or Messy Balcony

Curious Barcelona balcony [enlarge]

Some people contribute to art without ever knowing it. Haven't you realized that some balconies in Barcelona are participating in some kind of silent permanent exhibition? I have seen many. A long time ago I posted a very unorthodox artwork with serious cartoonists' influence on an anonymous Barceloneta balcony. This sudden outburst of artistic manifestation is more frequent in the narrow streets of the old part of town. It seems that as there is no room enough for such hype of creativity artists feel the urgent need of showcasing their one-of-a-kind exhibits in the balcony.

    I agree with you artistic expression is everywere and in those narrow streets from the balconys anything goes :)

    Love it! When I stayed in the Gothic District, I too noticed all the colorful balconies. Some were just messy and others were deliberately decorated. Right now, on my porch, I have a pot with dead plants and a left over Christmas decoration!
