The graffiti photographed in this book are a privileged testimony of Barcelona at the beginning of the 21st century and were made by the most inspired and radical street artists; graffiti artists who have made names for themselves in this city and are now internationally recognized artists.

The ephemeral wall-canvases of a vibrant Barcelona in constant architectural redesign have summoned graffiti artists from around the world to create works of powerful form and colour, a transformation which has resulted in the enjoyment of the ordinary citizen and condemnation from the local administration.

As an author, I thank the publisher for the privilege of republishing this new version of Barcelona Graffiti, for which I have chosen the graphic works of greatest impact and visual interest. As a photographer, I’ve insured that these collected samples cover the range of creative vitality of this city which astonishes the world by being a Mecca for graffiti and street art in general. I hope the selection will please everyone...

Rosa Puig, nacida en Esparraguera (Barcelona) en 1960, es hija y nieta de fotógrafos. Vive y trabaja en Barcelona, donde desde 1985 se dedica profesionalmente al diseño gráfico y a la fotografía.

    Pepeangel, el libro contiene 144 páginas de fotografías de graffitis con un único texto introductorio en inglés que sin duda atraerá a todos los que nos visitan hacia nuestra ciudad. Un saludo.
