I am Albert Serra. I am art. I am Barcelona. I am Swab.


A word that describes Barcelona?


Is your place of creation, the studio, inspired by your city?

Yes, especially by the people’s character.

If Barcelona was an art work, what would you name it?


A place in the city that connects you with art?

The bars…

A message to young creatives?

The city is useless; nowadays it doesn’t matter where you live.
