Happy New Year 2017 from Barcelona

31st December 2016

 

Wishing you a healthy, productive and prosperous 2017. And, if you can squeeze in some happiness, all the better.

See you next year. Sincerely hope it’s a great one for you.

The illustration is by our good friend, Oscar Astromujoff — a brilliant artist and illustrator —and a wonderful human being.

Oscar’s work is best known locally through his regular illustrations for the newspaper, La Vanguardia. In fact, there was one of Oscar’s illustrations in today’s (31/12/2016) edition. His artwork extends beyond simple illustration.

Thanks to Lali, his lovely partner, we were at Oscar’s apartment on Sant Esteve (Boxing Day) last week for a tea party. All good fun.

Anyway, here’s wishing you all the very best for 2017.

Fins aviat!

One of the many wonderful things about exploring Barcelona is happening across curious images in unexpected places.

Here's a graffiti I came across in Vila de Gràcia on Carrer del Perill, a few metres from Nou Can Codina and directly opposite Restaurant Gut.

I really like it. Makes me smile.

One of the many wonderful things about exploring Barcelona is happening across curious portraits of well-known, and not so well-known, people in unexpected places.

Here’s a portrait of Hollywood star, Betty Grable. Thanks to O.P. [see comments]. I had previously erroneously attributed the portrait to Rita Hayworth.

Came across it on Carrer Lleida, just off Avinguda Paral·el, not so very far from Albert Adrià’s restaurant, Pakta.
