The ÚS Barcelona graffiti festival is holding its second edition in Poblenou this May. Last year over 9,000 people came together to see 30 artists from all over the globe paint the walls of the old Encants market. A lot of the work is still visible from the new Pl. de les Glòries.
In this year's edition people will be invited to take part in the creation of the artwork with the aim of transforming the area with the participation of the residents themselves. The location is C/ Pere IV between Fluvià and Selva de Mar and all of the urban space will be used - walls, pavements and building façades.
Besides well-known graffiti artists, there will also be graphic artists, sculptors and illustrators. The days will be packed with workshops, conferences, music, an art market, street food and lots of other activities.
