Graffiti and Street Art of Barcelona Spain

I stayed in La Ribera neighborhood in Barcelona which is a wonderful walking neighborhood and I enjoyed wandering around exploring my surroundings and snapping photos of the various graffiti.

I love checking out the outdoor galleries of cities – sometimes the graffiti is political – sometimes playful – sometimes profound. I can’t resist taking photos of the art work in the streets.

Some people consider graffiti an eyesore and don’t see any value in it. I think graffiti and street art add to the character of a city – people will express themselves whether we give them the okay to use the canvas or not.

What is your opinion of graffiti – art or eyesore?
