Illustration for an article on how instagram is affecting how we travel. “Star instagram travellers” advertise for previously unspoiled parts of the world where people actually line up to get to get the perfect picture. Behind the images of beautiful deserted beaches is a crowd of people. This also affects the locals. In certain poor countries local fisherman make more money posing for pictures (to make the scenery look “authentic” ), than fishing.

Bar Ceiling decoration
This project involved decorating the entire ceiling of the "Rabipelao" based on the theme « El Raval », the name of the district in Barcelona in which the Bar/Restaurant is situated. It's one of the very old parts of the city centre, one which is very active and vibrant both day and night.
Any city centre is made up of a varied mixture of characters, but the particularity of the Raval is that it concentrates so many people from such different social/economic/cultural backgrounds in very small area. Consequently, the random scenes and events are never-ending and often rather surreal. Skaters, local loonies, old people shuffling along in dressing gowns, zombie tourists (armed with cameras), students, street-sellers (around the clock), prostitutes (also around the clock), musicians, professional and debutante pickpockets, artists, street sweepers, poets, drug dealers, old hippies, neo-hippies, intellectuals, skateboarders, drunks, craftsmen, gallery owners and assorted drifters... all crossing paths.
The ceiling is three metres high, which means that you can't see the whole picture at once, but instead have to move around the room in order to do so. This important fact was taken into account at the beginning of the project and lead to the idea of creating several different perspectives and distortions, the aim being that the images will change according to wherever one stands/sits in the room. The drawings were developed from ideas and sketches from street scenes in the Raval and were executed directly in chalk on the black ceiling, then traced over with a white permanent marker.
