article image'Walking Gallery' — An artistic breath of fresh air in Spain

By Anne Sewell     Apr 7, 2012 in Arts
Spanish artists can now regularly be seen walking on the streets and beaches displaying their art. Why wait in a gallery for people to come and see your work, when you can take it to the people? No more walls!
Walking Gallery is run under the direction of Spanish artist José Puig, and presents another brand new route through the city of Barcelona, with a great number of participating artists displaying high quality work.
Other cities are also getting into the action, including Madrid, Bilbao, San Sebastian, Zaragoza and Vigo in Spain, and also Buenos Aires in Argentina.
Their mantra? "NO MORE WALLS!"

The artists stroll in the street, with their work strapped to their bodies. Those lazy art aficionados can now enjoy the work right where they are, out in the streets.
