The great artist Eduardo Chillida created Mural G-333 three years after the inauguration of the MACBA (Barcelona's Contemporanean Art Museum) building. When the museum invited him to make a work in the surrounding of the building, the artist was clear: it would be created on a facade next to the museum.
In this way, he reinforced his idea of creating a public art collection around the world. The Raval
Quarter was lucky to be one of the places chosen by the artist to create his work, as was the Gothic
Quarter with the Topos Sculpture or
the Gracia District with the Sculpture Praise of Water.
Chillida's mural for MACBA shows the sculptor's artistic language and his concept of abstraction. The Mural G-333 highlights the modulation of spaces and the play between the full and the empty.
It is made with an oxidized ceramic technique, developed in France. The mural ended up measuring 15.55 meters wide by 5.90 meters high. As it is placed rather high, you easily miss it when passing so we suggest you to pay attention!
