Meritxell Duran Exhibition: Barcelona, Spain

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:08 PM by inspirationsbysd

We stumbled upon this local artist, Mertixell Duran while walking around the streets in Avinguda Diagonal, the sculptures instantly drew us in. The artist was actually there, and they were nice enough to show us around, I think we had the most fun in this small space because we got to look at the pieces up close, take pictures and I even got in inside one of her sculptures (below) lol  She works in one of the local newspapers as an illustrator and also has her own projects which consist of mainly sculptures.

I loved her work so much I had to get something, of course her sculptures price range were $2000 to $12000 so the only thing we could afford was the cooky messenger bags shaped as a bear/baby’s head it came in several colors but I went with cement grey, the artist was actually wearing one in black she told me that while wearing it on your back, people walking behind you will be smiling at your bag lol
