La Sagrerina Mural
Nau Bostik, Barcelona, Spain
‘La Sagrerina’ mural is inspired by history of the La Sagrera barrio and portrays a modern version of the Sagrera giant doll, better known as Sagrerina, which met her lover while searching for water.
I used assemblage techniques to reflect the fact that the area became an industrial neighbourhood, dominated by metallurgy and textile sectors at the end of 19th century.
5 meters tall mural brings a positive message to the Bostik Murals project lead by Xavier Ballaz, co-funder of Difusor and his team. Little girl looking at the sunrise is a symbol of a bright future for Nau Bostik who recently received Lluís Carulla Prize 2018 for their achievements in urban arts linked to social factory of La Sagrera area.
