Tags: Barcelona, Kevin McGloughlin, Sligo
This timelapse piece, ‘Age Face’, comes from Sligo man, Kevin McGloughlin and shows us just what you can achieve with a craft knife, cutting mat and a nice idea. The Barcelona influenced street artist tells us ‘I dont generally work with stencils, but here is one I made recently. It’s a reproduction of a free hand piece I painted. I photographed it and redrew it. I then pretty much duplicated one side to make it more symmetrical, but it still has a bit of variety as apposed to a mirrored image.’
Nice stencil, great final piece!

After 3 rounds including wins over Copenhagen and Paris, Dublin are top of group 3 of Secret Wars Euroleague. Next up for the Irish is a home bout with the much fancied Barcelona, the only city to have previously got the better of them. This time, however, Catalan outfit won’t have it all their own way as the Bernard Shaw event, this Saturday, the 24th of April from 8pm, promises to be the most intense battle to date. Check out Barcelona‘s victory over Dublin in March in the video below.
Secret Wars began back in 2006, it was small, and intimate yet had the potential to be so much more. Years of hard work, dedication and a strong following has meant Secret Wars has pushed the boundaries and raised the bar for artists and promoters alike.
Its all culminated to this, present day, present time, 17 European locations The Secret Wars Euro League has finally arrived!
Boasting a range of cities including London, Lisbon, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dublin, Amsterdam and many more proves that there really isnt a stage big enough for the groundbreaking and award-winning event.
Secret Wars will be an Olympic sport, mark these words….

This timelapse video shows Irish street Artists, Pat and Fis, creating murals of two homeless people in Guinardo, Barcelona. Speaking of their inspirational work, they told IrishStreetArt.com “We decided to make them colorful to show how rich the homeless are at heart as we met so many homeless while out and about,and their outlook seemed to remain positive and genuine regardless of their situation”. Beautiful street art pieces, great footage.

‘Ways to Kill a Werewolf’ is the official music video for the song by Pearse McGloughlin, painted by Irish street artist Kevin McGloughlin in Barcelona last summer. Kevin told IrishStreetArt.com that this piece of work was actually a winner at the IMTV awards for best Irish music video, in the solo male category. We think this this video is an excellent interpretation of the songs lyrics and well definitely worth a goo!

Pez, fresh from taking part in the Zoo exhibition in at the brick lane gallery in London, sent us in the pick of his most recent work. The collection also includes pieces he created at Cork‘s Surace Tension street art event when he visited these shores in 2007. Pez, or Fish in Spanish started, tagging on the outskirts of Barcelona in 1999. The international icon’s letters soon evolved into his now famous smiling fish. ‘The funny character’s goal was to send good vibrations to people walking in the streets and soon its family grew into a huge smile of giraffes, demons, angels and aliens.’

Its summer time, when the Irish flood abroad for a good old burn and the annual dose of Deli belly. Its also festival season as Europe really comes to life. If you’re lucky enough to get to in Barcelona, one of the continents richest cities for urban culture. From music to skateboarding you won’t find a friendlier, more relaxed vibe. A few weeks back we found ourselves on the streets of the Catalonian city for Primavera Sound. Barcelona has some of the best street art spots you’ll see brimming with a plethora of legendary writers and crew. If you want to find information on the best places in Barcelona for graffiti The Watergate Bookshop cannot be missed. We never saw such a collection of street art literature. The street art in Barcelona is everywhere and incredibly easy to find. In fact the photos below were taken no more than a short walk from Plaça de Catalunya. A great wall that gets a face lift weekly is Jardins de Walter Benjamin at the end of Les Ramblas. For more Barcelona Street Art click here

Here is a collection of graff I photoed while partying in Barcelona at the Primavera Sound music festival. Day time in the urban cultural capital of the Mediterranean was mostly spent in bed recovering from the antics of the previous night. On the odd occasion I did see sunlight I had my camera with me to capture just a taste of what Barca has to offer. If you enjoy fine art and architecture visit this city however if graffiti is more to your taste, Barcelona is a must see. Hint: Some of the city’s most impressive tagging is best seen on your way home from a nightclub when the sun is rising, the shops are yet to open and the street canvas shutters are still down.
