Barcelona's Alternative Art Scene

Posted: May. 7th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Break free from the beaten art path in Barcelona and take a stroll through the city's alternative art scene. The Spanish city has a whole lot more to offer than the big-name locations and artists, and it has a surprising number of impressive local artists.

There’s more to Barcelona than Antoni Gaudí and the Picasso Museum. The Tyler Group Barcelona Expat taps into its unconventional arts scene.


Esther Arias Galería de Arte y Taller

Everyone exits Metro Jaume and heads directly to the Picasso Museum via Carrer Princesa. But there is a much more attractive short cut that will take you past Esther Arias’s gallery in a warm and inviting 18th-century building. Although Arias often devotes a wall to a guest artist, this is her taller (workshop) and the paintings on display are her own: enchanting, colourful abstracts with a dreamlike quality. Along with the large canvases, there are some exquisite framed acrylics on paper at a good price. This is the perfect place to begin a walk through the Born with its many art and artisan shops.
