I spent the other day exploring and painting in an abandoned mansion near Barcelona. In its heyday the estate was a decadent beach front palace. Today it has been left to complete ruins and more than a few of us have come through to leave our mark. While adding to the decay I decided to paint on a mirrored closet with a phrase to reflect on. Especially for those who once lived here. Keep It Simple Stupid

Nice photo report from last Sunday afternoon by Spank (MadLove/FK). Lots more over at the MTN-World blog
Casa Nova, meaning New House in Catalan, was painted in a torn out house on the outskirts of of Barcelona in the winter of 2009. The message, colors and delicacy of these painted words strike a stark but seductive contrast to the chaos and decay surrounding the remains of these walls. The amount of detail and texture in this image shine through stunningly in this large photographic print.
