Street Art on Doors: Face - Barri Gotic, Barcelona
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.
