The Sagrada Familia church began construction in 1882 and is anticipated to be completed in 2026. The UNESCO World Heritage Site recently released a video depicting the final stages of construction of what was Antoni Gaudi's last project and "the most extraordinary personal interpretation of Gothic architecture since the Middle Ages."

Rocío Cañero's artwork is nasty-slick-amazing and we love it. Born and raised in Madrid, Cañero grew up around graffiti, skateboarding and crews, and her artistic career actually began in photography. It's not hard to see how the urban street aesthetic has influenced her work.

Spanish artist Antonio Santin's collection paintings of human bodies (we assume) hidden under ornate tapestries are rather haunting. His process involves projecting a photograph onto the wall and manipulating the size and proportion as he paints. He is currently on exhibit at Marc Straus Gallery in NYC.

The trees became innocent bystanders when this “Born To Hang” was painted by Spain and Retroe off the freeway. As if spray paint vandalism didn’t piss them off already, now there trees lay massacred.

Milano-based architecture firm Santabrogiomilano has designed a transparent house concept that is ready to be built almost anywhere in the world. The inhabitants of the house would be completely surrounded by glass except for the ground floor. Every structural element of the house is composed of glass pieces and by pressing a button the glass can instantly be turned matte for privacy!

Using various foods and a disposable plate, Spanish photographer Esther Lobo has created a simple and interesting series of images resembling the Rorschach Test type. Perhaps there is also a deeper symbolism between memory, food and psychological conditions?

Spain, Empty, and Retroe painted the sentiment “It's Getting Tougher To Say The Right Things” as bold as you can for easy reading.

'Egolatriz' is the title of the latest work from Spanish artist Liqen, a favorite here at Juxtapoz and an artist who brings into play symbols of Western culture, and much of the civilized world. His work, although it can verge on the absurd and even a little demented and sick, plays with allegory. For example, the "blue dog" represents madness, and the chicken man represents pride, the false taste and greed. His work aims to be a game of unconscious forms and values that are part of postmodern society.

That old saying, “Whatever makes you feel comfortable” as long ass you paint it large and bold across a wall where it can be seen. PAinted by Spain.

Earlier this week we posted the sculptural work of Barcelona-baed artist Javier Pérez. Aside from being an amazing sulptor, Javier is also is a fantastic illustrator so this morning we thought we would show you a collection of his drawings.
