Spanish street artist Escif recently opened his solo show “Contra la Pared” or “Up Against the Wall” in his native country. The exhibition, held at Montana Gallery in Barcelona, re-emphasized his love for the imagery of walls, barriers, ladders, and his signature characters running around creating mayhem. For this show, much like the one at P.O.W., he creates a series of what look to be watercolors based on his outdoor murals. We would have liked it if he did some pieces on found materials, put up an installation, or in some way translated his public work a little better into a gallery setting, but these pieces were still interesting.
Take a look at some opening pics here, as well as all the affordable pieces here. Some of our favorites after the jump…
