Flooding walls, shutters and canvases with neon colors andabstract forms, the art of Zosen, H101, Kenor and Göla radiates its up-beatenergy from the metal and concrete surfaces of Barcelona’s gritty industrialneighborhoods. The artists currently prepare for their upcoming groupexhibition, “Barcelona’s Finest,” which debuts April 16th at GalerieCelal in Paris, as well as a book release and a marathon of workshops and performances leading up to the date.
