one of my favorite things

 While in Barcelona last Fall, one of my favorite things to find was graffiti.  The city is rife with artful graffiti and bold, sometimes clever, placement of such.  I took as many photos as there was graffiti where I went, but the city's collection was far more expansive than my tourista legs were walking.  Barcelona's visual identity was and is powerfully vibrant and distinctive while in colorful graphic flux.  I imagine the city has it's issues with vandalism, but it has learned to embrace the ever-present street arts as it's own.  Today, International Design Network's (IdN) facebook post brought this to my attention: ART BRUT : A Tribute to the Barcelona Graffiti Scene.
