Flaming head

Work of Joel Arroyo and John Beijer, Barcelona, June 2019

I discovered this bright and colourful mural in June on a huge expanse of legal street art walls in Barcelona. Enjoy it here, as when I went past the following day it was being painted over by another artist.

  1. What a pity they were being painted over as they are bright and fabulous. I wonder why the Chinese symbols when neither of the artists seems to have an Asian name.
    Thanks for contributing Debbie.

      1. I get that street art is temporal – I just never thought that one might paint over someone else’s work. While I say this, I realise that lots of age-old frescos do just this. That you for yet another post that sparks memory and much reflection.
