These are some shots from the second part of my time in Spain, when I was in Barcelona. I fell in love with it there. Amazing place. I could even see living there someday. I just painted one small piece there, on a roll-down door for a tattoo shop called Steelworks. It's based on a famous painting by the great Spanish artist Diego Velázquez from 1650. I also got a tour of the Montana spraypaint factory (thanks to Angelo & Jordi!) which was pretty amazing. Like the Willy Wonka factory but for paint. It's got a huge mural by Os Gemeos outside and the day I went was surrounded by misty green magical mountains. Years of using montana and I had no idea! I got to see Parque Güell and a few other famous spots in the city as well as hang out with some very cool people. Saludos a Mark, Marta, Max, Alex, Smash....and most importantly, thanks to my globetrotter compa Jordan y la encantadora Gemma por toda su hospitalidad. Hasta pronto!
