Abandoned buildings hide the mysteries and stories from earlier times. Left on their own, they do not attract the usual crowds of people anymore and do not serve the purpose they once were built for.

For the artist David Lozano, Barcelona’s abandoned places have a special meaning. Worn-down walls serve as a canvas for his imaginative caricature drawings. Easily recognizable characters such as “Cookie Monster” are depicted in a unique and, quite frankly, frightening way.

Barcelona is known for its art. Lots of people come to see the work of Gaudi or other famous artists. But art not only lingers in the most famous museums or art galleries. Sometimes art can appear in the weirdest places. 

Nowadays, street art tells as much of a story as any other art form. If you don’t want to spend money on museums, then street art is the way to go.

Street art in Barcelona marks its beginning not that long ago. In the 1970s after the collapse of the Franco regime, Barcelona's street art scene officially started to appear. The restrictions were generally loose up until roughly 2002, which allowed Barcelona's street art scene to thrive.

Artist David Lozano took street art to another level by deciding to make amazing paintings over the walls of abandoned buildings and places. It almost is like giving another life and purpose to the places that used to be crowded with people a long time ago.

Instead of being in abandoned buildings, these should be in a gallery!

The craftsmanship that goes into these graffiti artworks is beyond amazing. The drawing style this artist chose might also have contributed to the incredible effect.

The art style David paints in is quite frightening, and it only fits better with the context of abandoned buildings. It gives a feeling of these drawings haunting the buildings after they are left alone.
