Barcelona. 19th of April 2015. The artist couple known as “Alacalle” gained the first prize of the “Enrotlla’t amb el Mercat del Clot“, a event held last Sunday by the Enrotlla’t movement which had help from Sant Martí district, and with patronage of the Institut Municipal de Mercats de Barcelona (municipal market institute of Barcelona) along with sponsors such as Estrella Damm and Montana Colors. The objective of the event was to dignify the shutters of the municipal area.
The winning piece, and winner of a prize valued to 300€, consisted in the word “Alma” (Soul), a theme chosen by the shop owners of the market themselves. Sav45 and Bru Cortacans came in second, and third, which gave them prices of the value 200 and 100 Euros. Yuka, El Rughi and Cram also got recognition after being placed 4th to 6th and given vouchers for products of the market. Furthermore, the association of the the Clot market and the Sant Martí both received a honorary prize each for the support and effort to recognize and establish urban art in the city and in public spaces.
The live painting of the over 20 participants brought along a lot of curiosity from the neighboring citizens of Sant Martí on this great day filled with music and other activities alongside the event.
