Last month i had the pleasure to be part of the festival ‘FemRimes FemGraff’ in my hometown Barcelona. Organized by Boca Nord and curated by Open Walls, the festival invited me to paint a mural inspired by the poem ‘De la mujer que no ha perdido su instinto’ by Alba Cendra Mallén.
Finally i had the opportunity to paint a huge official mural in the city i’ve been living for 11 years. It’s been really exciting to be painting at home, to meet people from the neighborhood and some of you coming by to show love and support.
It was a great challenge to sketch that big, and i enjoyed improvising the colors and let me inspired by the atmosphere of the area. I felt touched by the positive feedback of the old people passing by, and the nice words i got during the process. I’m grateful and it means a lot to give this wall to my city.
I am glad to share with you some pictures of the process.
