The wall, was a typical place for paint since the 90`s and it was rests of a street art celebration (and fucked the day after for some local kids, we don´t know why)…

we thought nothing was going to happen (one of the worst neighborhood in barcelona nowadays called *La Mina* is at the same town we were, Sant Adrià) so we thought the police we’re gonna be helping the world, and not giving moral lessons when you are doing ART at a fucked place. Its called spanish common sense.
As most of you might know, new Zero Tolerance laws made painting in Barcelona almost impossible. Where there was full color, gray now is the sovereign. The last example was the complete buffing of the Drassanes wall, which had been painted for more than 15 years, as quoted in a previous post on bcnstyle. So now, officialy, there’s no one single spot to paint legal in town.
The current situation
Whilst trying to put this blog together, we contacted as many artists involved with Barcelona street art as we could find, many have been seriously discussing the situation in private. Now, the artists have started to get organised.
