American multi-disciplinary artist Max Ripo and Spanish Spogo recently to paint this new collaborative wall for the OpenWalls Showcase 2015 in association with Difusor in Barcelona.
The painted surface presented some challenges that the artists ended incorporating in the composition, this case the cracking and flaking paint, and in some way the history of the building giving birth to an interesting composition consisting of intricate patterns, horizontal and diagonal stripes, geometrical shapes, letters and bright colours.
