It wasn't until in 1975 when Francisco Franco's party-pooping dictatorship ended that Spain embarked on a serious mission to catch up with the thriving graffiti and street art scene over in New York and the UK. To help nurture burgeoning artists and help them battle against the repression put
down by Francoism, the Madrid counterculture movement was started and so began the Spanish street art scene. 
Since then, some the world's most famous names have come from the streets of Barcelona, Granada and Seville including dudes/ladies like Pez, Lahe and Belin to name a few. 

So there ya go, Spanish street art history in a nutshell!

Anyway, point is, we stumbled across a nice little selection of pieces from the streets of the Albayzin district in Granada and thought we'd do the right thing and share 'em.
