Interview with Barcelona Graffiti Blogger, No Grey Walls

Interview with Barcelona Graffiti Blogger, No Grey Walls

"Once again I’ve been fortunate enough to interview another artist who’s work I really admire. This time it’s Wisconsin native Audifax who’s taken time out of her busy schedule to answer some questions. Expect talk of fairies, a love of Barcelona and strange crushes…"

Audifax & Bubu Paint Western Towne - Barcelona, Spain

Audifax & Bubu Paint Western Towne - Barcelona, Spain

My friend, long time graffiti girl, Arububu invited me to paint in an abandoned area called “Western Town” behind Poblenou Park in Barcelona, Spain. It’s a large open space with crumbling walls and parts of the city as a backdrop, that's where we started painting our murals...

Gallery Night, Milwaukee, WI - USA

The perfect welcome back to Wisconsin after exploring new skills in Spain!
My first exhibition state side was at The Iron Horse Hotel, for Milwaukee's summer edition of Gallery Night & Day. I featured acrylic paintings and, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to show Balance the sculpture.

"Memories That Are Not My Own"

"Memories That Are Not My Own"

This piece is dedicated to all the beautiful ladies in my life- friends, family, mentors. I continue to meet so many lovely lady friends, who seem like we've already met in another lifetime- hence the name. With theft, trash digging and a 25 kilo bucket of paint on a skateboard, the process of creating was certainly an interesting one.

Just about to start the "Reflection Connection" mural on Selva de Mar, along came Stuart, a London blogger who was sponsored to come to Barcelona and write about the street art scene. In the few days he had been here, he already developed a network of artists, and wrote about all the BCN heavy hitters and up and comers.

Located in an abandoned area, the second mural painting experience was completely different than the first. My new friend, Aru, invited me to paint in a place called “Western Town” behind Poblenou Park in Barcelona.

I recently had the honour of being a guest on the sassy, DJ Bobby Bastos show, and had a great time talking about murals, life, and everything else! Check out a few highlights from our fun discussion!

Reflection Connection Mural - Time Lapse

Reflection Connection Mural - Time Lapse

Just finished this mural "Reflection / Connection" on Selva de Mar in Poblenou Barcelona, Spain. It was my first real try at a graffiti mural after watching techniques of new friends. Being on the street is a totally different experience compared to zenning alone in a studio, but it was a quick adjustment for someone who loves sunshine and people.

Kobra - Incredible!

Kobra - Incredible!

Everyone knows his name in the graffiti world, and for good reason. Kobra's work just never ceases to amaze me, and he's part of the inspiration for my trip to another country; to learn some techniques of my own with a spray can as my new medium.

Array of Styles

Array of Styles

Recently I met with some new friends, to pick up supplies before heading to a new spot to paint. I originally intended to get a "starter kit" and make something real, but instead took a back seat and watched them do their thing. With four different styles in action, in front of me, I'm glad I did. I learned a lot and was prompted to pick up a can and make something on the fly. Definitely not something I'm used to.

Painting With a Pro

Painting With a Pro

I recently had my first experiencing graffiti painting- learning from a pro. Having a feeling the process might be enjoyable, I was right, I'm pretty sure, I'm hooked.

Electronic Soul Playlist

Music plays a HUGE part in my motivation. Here are some of my favorite electronic songs that I consider to be classic. (I'm always adding new music. Check out more of my playlists, if you need something more crunk!)

Unique Art in a Vibrant City

Checked out the studio of Martin del Litto today. Incredible, vibrant and diverse collection of work! I don't want to give away all of his secret techniques, so I'll just sayhis latest experiments involve spray paint and white boards (his last projects, a hair dryer and small pool were used!). His work seems to evolve with whatever his mind can dream up, and materials he can get his hands on. And I have to say, he has a pretty great space to work in, too. Check out his instagram!

An Artist Abroad - The Barcelona Journey Begins

An Artist Abroad - The Barcelona Journey Begins

This is my story of why I'm headed to Barcelona, Spain, with a loose plan and just my heart as my guide. It's time for western thinking vs. spiritual teaching, and I'm taking the ultimate plunge by not only practicing what I preach, but inviting you on the journey as well. Leaving in a week - "I'll keep you posted!" =)
