Overview

Since opening its doors in 2003, Base Elements has functioned as a multi-faceted gallery- acting as both a workshop and studio- where space and forum collide.There is no doubt that Barcelona is one of the world’s hubs for Graffiti and Street Art. The walls and buildings of the city have become a canvas for both unknown taggers and globally known urban artists. With the concept of providing a literal and figurative canvas for such independent artists, Robert Burt (California native) and his wife Monica Riu (Barcelona Native) founded Base Elements Urban Art Gallery in 2003 with hopes of creating a space where such street artists could not only showcase their talents, but also be embraced as true artists.

This is a very cool art gallery with contemporary and street artists from Barcelona. The work spans a range of styles but is all quite good at reasonable prices. The owner is very knowledgable about the local art scene. Definitely worth a stop in Barcelona.

It feels like you are entering into someones living room, with the relaxed setting. Lots of colorful paintings, prints and even some merch with handmade art from the artist displayed there. Check it out!

Stumbled on this gallery by chance and spent ages learning about the best street artists of Barcelona. One of the best things we did whilst visiting this city!
