It seems like all the best street art in the world is coming out of Europe right now, and Barcelona is no exception in the least. With vibrant colors and slick designs, Barcelona's street art might not be legal but it's definitely worth checking out and grabbing on film. 

You could go to Barcelona and see Sagrada Familia, and the contemporary art museum and all of the Gaudi houses, but if you head to the capital of Catalonia and don't take some time to simply peruse the streets and check out the graffiti, you'll miss out on some of the best art and creative inspiration that the city has to offer.

I, for one, am not usually a fan of graffiti, but done well, it's a form of public art. In fact, graffiti in Barcelona is as ubiquitous as spots to drink an outdoor cortado. Walking one day I noticed a huge art supply store, their main window display a collection of cans of spray paint.
