Kitsch Art or Messy Balcony
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.
