Hand Sculpture Street Art Installed throughout Barcelona

by Danny OldaPosted on

Artists Octavi Serra and Mateu Targa in collaboration with Daniel Llugany and Pau Garcia created this series of street interventions appropriately titled Hands.  The artists molded sculptures of variously posed hands and installed them throughout the city of Barcelona.  The hands interact with the surrounding architecture and at times directly with people in the neighborhood. Striking in its simplicity, the hands have the potential to communicate complex and serious messages.  The installations comment on socio-political and economic issues specific to Spain yet still able to touch on a broader scale.
