It’s a simple concept. Make yourself known to the world via something big, graphic, and eye catching. Like most highways across the world Catalunya’s roads are littered with billboards. The unfortunate thing for Catalan billboards is that the only difference between Anuncia’t (advertise yourself) and Denuncia’m (report me to the authorities, or press charges on me) is three letters, a lick of paint, and a couple of minutes of work.
At the same time that same message that is worth “vandalizing” can be empowering if painted onto a wall without any permission. Condemn the abuses of visual space for profit and advertise yourself wherever you please

I felt this was the only message I would feel comfortable putting in a space like this.
It was also Andrea from Btoy‘s Birthday! Happy birthday Andrea!
The superstar of the day had to be the little girl from the neighborhood who just got up at the DJ booth, and start singing, freestyling, rocking out to the beats, and seriously moving the crowd for hours. This girl’s got rhythm!
