LateRooms.com - Check out powerful Murals in Barcelona

February 27, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
LateRooms.com can announce that the Murals exhibition at Barcelona's Joan Miro Foundation could be a dream ticket for many art enthusiasts, with painters from across the globe taking part to make it a truly spectacular show.

Artists from West Africa, the US, Mexico and Europe have been invited to paint a creative space as part of the Murals, with a camera set up to film how they go about their work.

When people arrive from their hotels in Barcelona, they will have the prospect of a rich variety of works to enjoy, ranging from an interactive display by Jacob Dahlgren, to paintings using dots of clay on a red ground created by Thai artist Sakarin Krue-On.

The ten people brought in to paint at the Murals exhibition each have very different styles, with venue hoping to educate people as to the modern mural-art that exists around the world.

"Mural painting is determined by the architecture, by the surfaces - the forms, the volumes, the planes - so that there is a complete fusion of landscape, architecture and painting," Miro himself is quoted as saying in an interview in 1951.

The exhibition is on until June 6th when a show about Pipilotti Rist will begin.

Entrance costs 8.50 (£7.51) and the gallery opens from 10:00 to 19:00 from Tuesday to Saturday and 10:00 to 14:30 on Sundays and public holidays.

Commenting on Murals, Jessica Reading, head of marketing for LateRooms, said: "We strongly urge people thinking of going to Murals and who need hoteles en Barcelona to book early to avoid disappointment."
