The Art From Chaos platform keeps on working hard, and the proof of that can be seen in this article they have published on the historical visits of graffiti artists Futura2000 and Keith Haring in Barcelona. The article is released at a perfect moment due to the recent restoration Keith Haring‘s mural made on his visit to Barcelona back in 1989.

We highly recommend you to read through this publication since it offers a interesting historical material along with a important reflection over the current public appreciation of graffiti in the city of Barcelona.

Repainting the mural today, 25 years later and for the third time, is useless*. Since neither the first re-painting opened the debate, we don’t believe that it will be different today. Until today we haven’t maturated nor learned, and the local art world still looks at graffiti as something related to vandalism.
