BSA Partners With Contorno Urbano and You in Barcelona!


BSA announces a huge success for the international open call for the mural and residency in Sant Feliu de Llobregat (Barcelona, Spain).

BSA is partnering with Contorno Urbano Foundation on this massive and sweet 400 square meter wall - and 284 artists from 42 countries have applied to win the competition to paint it!

BSA has been helping hundreds of artists to connect with opportunities for a decade, and we like this people-powered non-commercial organization that actively sponsors Street Artists, graffiti artists, conceptual artists, mural artists to paint walls in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, an industrial city and municipality in Catalonia, Spain, in the province of Barcelona.

Next Step: Pre-Selection

Next step is the pre-selection of the 12 finalists by a committee made by members of the City Council, 2 curators and a street art specialist.

In October the names of the 12 finalists will be revealed and they will create a sketch for the ultimate selection in November.

Members of the jury: 
Jaime Rojo (co-founder Brooklyn Street Art, curator), 
Fernando Figueroa (PHD in History of Art, Independent researcher specialized in graffiti and urban art), 
Veronica Werckmeister (painter and muralist, curator) 
Yasha Young (Director of Urban Nation, curator).

Creation of the mural: The artist chosen will win a 7000€ prize and all the fees will be covered. The wall will be paint in Spring 2018 after an artistic residency in order the artist knows the historic context and the city.

The mural will represent the neighbors’ fight 30 years ago to have this public square created instead of a gas station.

In Spring 2018 the selected winning artist will have a residency in Barcelona so you can get to know the city, the people and the context for creating the mural.

This is a WIN-WIN opportunity for the winning artist to create something meaningful and lasting for a community and to meet some really amazing people here and in Barcelona, the vibrant Spanish city that has played an important role in the rise of the global Street Art scene.
