Waiting for Spring in BarcelonaJuxtapoz // Sunday, 07 Mar 2010
Barcelona based Villas came across a tiny room while painting in an abandoned building. To welcome springtime, he challenged himself to create the smallest graffiti characters on the largest backdrop he’s ever tackled.
“I was painting the other day in a abandoned building that I found here in Barcelona and the place is so beautiful, full of stuff from an old factory, offices and everything really dirty...
It’s a nice place and full of surprises!
“One nice surprise was finding a really tiny room, full of leaves from an old tree that grew up into the window. I have been trying to paint bigger and bigger the last few months and got pretty exited of going big, but when I saw this tiny little room I got really inspired to make one of my smallest graffiti pieces ever. The main character has about 6 centimeters and the whole room is no more than 2 meters.
“The weather in Barcelona is becoming more and more close to Spring and that is what I tried to express a fresh start with new leaves and good vibe.”
