SPAIN has produced some of the world’s finest visual artists with the likes of Picasso and Dali household names.
These artists not only changed the world of art – Picasso produced two of the top 10 most expensive paintings ever sold – but even visual culture in general.
Dali, for example, designed the colours of logo’s of Spain’s Chupa Chups brand of lollipops.
These days Spain’s most exciting artists are found far outside from Madrid’s Prado.
They are street artists who work alongside town halls to spread messages of inclusion, celebrating the elderly, reducing electricity consumption and promoting feminisim.
Their work paints life and colour into otherwise empty walls and structures.
An amazing 18 Spanish artists are in the top 100 murals just announced by the Best Street Art of 2021 collective.
