Lluís Olivé


La Garriga, Barcelona, 1950

Now retired, Lluis has been an amateur photographer since the age of sixteen. In 2005 he began to focus on urban photography, mainly of walls and graffiti, though he does not disdain to capture any image he considers interesting.

He writes two blogs on urban art, one on the Poblenou neighbourhood and the other on the Jardins de les Tres Xemeneies on the Paral·lel in Barcelona. He has also contributed articles about urban art to online publications such Brooklyn Street Art, Huffington Post, Restos de Cultura, lamono magazine, and Upsocl. He has recently created an audiovisual work about the best pieces of urban art in Barcelona.
