Casa Vicens

CASA VICENS WAS THE FIRST MAJOR COMMISSIONED WORK THAT ANTONI GAUDÍ RECEIVED IN 1878, AND IS CONSIDERED HIS FIRST MASTERPIECE. IT IS AN IMAGINATIVE, MODERN AND INNOVATIVE PROJECT, WHERE THE ARTIST USES FOR THE FIRST TIME NUMEROUS STRUCTURAL, DECORATIVE AND SYMBOLIC ELEMENTS THAT WILL EVENTUALLY DEFINE THEIR ARCHITECTURAL LANGUAGE.

Fashion week

February

IN ORDER TO LEAVE BEHIND THE IDEA OF THE BARCELONA CATWALK BEING AN EXCLUSIVE EVENT FOR BRANDS OF YOUNG AND LOCAL PEOPLE, THE CURRENT PROJECT SEEKS A BALANCE BETWEEN FUTURE PROPOSALS, DESIGN AND BRANDS WITH A MORE COMMERCIAL APROACH. IT IS INTENDED FOR CREATIVITY TO BE PRESENT, BUT FROM A BROAD AND TRANSVERSAL PERSPECTIVE, WHICH IS A REFLECTION OF THE COMPANIES AND THE CREATORS BEHIND IT.

Sant Jordi

April

IS A CATALAN HOLIDAY HELD ON 23 APRIL. THE MAIN EVENT IS THE EXCHANGE OF GIFTS BETWEEN SWEETHEARTS, LOVED ONES AND COLLEAGUES.

May 22, 2019 Matías Pérez - Sevilla Miscelánea

Miscelánea es una asociación cultural, galeria de arte y café que está en pleno Raval. Me tope con ella por casualidad mientras paseaba por Barcelona y fue un descubrimiento fantástico, ya que no sólo exponen a artistas emergentes, si no que venden prints numerados de un montón de artistas interesantísimos. Recomiendo muchísimo una visita a este pequeño ensueño cultural, perdido en medio del bullicio y la calma ravalera.
