About
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.

My husband and I fell in love with street art in Barcelona - I mean, how can you not? It's so fun and colorful, and the city has so much talent! It's all captured and embodied in this amazing art gallery. Not only a showcase of local talent, but it's also a live exhibit with BCN's artists painting right there in the store! It's incredible. Not only that, but the owner was passionate and friendly. He took the time to introduce us to the artists (one of us who gave us an INCREDIBLE free sticker of this art - so cool!), showed us around the store and talked to us about the pieces and their creators, and even gave us this amazing piece of art from one of his artists who did a performance piece at burning man that my husband wants to frame now haha. This store is a must visit while in Barcelona, and in my opinion some of the best souvenirs your can bring back from your trip and appreciate over a lifetime.

If you love graffiti, pop art and contemporary artists then this place is a must visit. This was our second visit to this gallery in the last four years and it didn’t disappoint. The owner was so kind to spend time showing us the incredible collections by talented local artists and we even met a couple during our last visit. We talked art, architecture and politics all surrounding the gallery and it’s contents. Our 10 & 12 year old girls also enjoyed the experience both times. Next time.. we’re not leaving empty handed.

If you have the slightest interest in street art then this is a must when in Barcelona.

The owner walked my family around and explained who the artists all were and about the art work.

I am not sure if everyone gets this 5⭐️ treatment, it made me feel like a King.

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.

This ia an amazing gallery with an incredible collection of "urban art"! If you want high end graffitti to hang in your home this place is not to be missed! I loved the selection, a huge range of artists and styles. If I lived closer I could EASILY have bought a few pieces. And the owner was so nice, we kept him late which he didn't even mention. He told us the whole history of Barcelona street art, it was fascinating. If you are nearby make sure to check it out!
