Questing Haring Barcelona // NEKO X BACKSERIES // Official Edit x David Montes Aldea



No es ningun secreto que me encanta Keith Haring ni tampoco que me hago polvo con la colección de Obey en colaboración con la fundación Haring. Desde muy pequeño recordaba que él había estado pintando en Barcelona, así pues cuándo hablé con los chicos de Backseries para hacer algo juntos les comenté la idea de buscar que parte de su obra seguía viva en la ciudad.



Is not a secret that I love Keith Haring neither that his Obey Clothing collab collection makes me crazy. Since I was a chlid I remember he was painting in Barcelona. That's why when I talked to the guys from Backseries to make something together I told them the idea about starting this quest looking for his living work at Barcelona city.





La primera pista me llevó a la Plaza Salvador Seguí en dónde Keith Haring había estado pintando un súper-mural a favor de la lucha contra el Sida el 27 de Febrero de 1989, meses antes de morir. Estuvo todo el día pintando un muro que tal y cómo pude comprobar fue derribado y en su lugar en esta plaza se encuentra la Filmoteca de Catalunya. Cuando se derribó este muro se transfirió el mural al muro de la fama del MACBA y luego a uno de los laterales junto a la obra de Chillida, lugar del que fué ''limpiado'' por empleados de limpieza del Ayuntamiento de Barcelona (BCNeta).

The first clue took me to Salvador Seguí Square where Keith Haring was painting a super-wall against Aids February 27th 1989, moths before his death. He was the whole day painting a wall that, as I could verify was demolished (actually is the Filmoteca de Catalunya building) and transferred to the wall of fame at MACBA and then to one ot the sides behid Chillida's work, where in the end was "cleaned" by the Barcelona's public cleaning service (BCNeta).


Después de esta ligera decepción me dirigí hacia los Billares Ars, lugar hacia dónde me llevaba mi segunda pista. La sala que ahora es una sala de billares había sido antiguamente un teatro y posteriormente una sala de conciertos y discoteca y resulta que Keith Haring había estado pintando en sus paredes en una fiesta durante su estancia en la ciudad Condal. Y efectivamente allí me encontré detrás de la barra una pieza con ese inconfundible trazo (en el mismo rojo que estaba pintado el mural de la plaza) un hombre flor en un muro en el que todavía pueden verse las marcas de los especialistas de la fundación Haring para estudiar la viabilidad de trasladarlo a Nueva York.

After this disappointment I headed Ars Pool the place where my second clue was leading me to. The venue is now a Pool but used to be a theatre and then a disco and Keith Haring was there partying during his trip to Barcelona. And actually, there was, behind the bar I found that unmistakable stroke (painted exactly with the same red from the square's wall) a flower-man painted over a wall where you can still see the scars from the Haring's Foundation specialsts that tried the viability to tear it off and take it to New York.


Los dueños de la sala me cuentan que les ofrecían una elevada suma de dinero por ello y que debajo de otras de las paredes que están pintadas en la sala podría haber más piezas del artista. Incluso el diseño de Keith Haring de la pared es el que preside el rótulo de la entrada y las tarjetas de visita. Resulta increíble pensar que el mismísimo Haring había estado allí creando esa pieza hacía más de 20 años...

The owners told me that they've been tempted with a lot of money and also that maybe could be more pieces from the artist under the painted wall behind. You can even see Haring's desing on their business card. Is amazing to think that Haring himself was right there creating that piece more than 20 years ago...


Y con este buen sabor de boca al comprobar que todavía existe sensibilidad hacía la obra de este artista eterno y agradeciendo a los dueños de los Billares Ars y sobre todo a Backseries, siempre es muy gratificante ver como en España también hay tiendas estrictamente online con una fórmula no muy común en este país (como mezclar ropa de colección con piezas únicas de vintage) y por qué no decirlo con una gran selección de prendas, que tienen ganas de hacer cosas interesantes.. solo me queda decir: Thanks a lot and enjoy the edit!!!

And with this nice taste checking that tere's still some sensibility to the work of this eternal artist and showing lots of gratitude to the owners of and avobe all to , is always so grateful to see that here in Spain we also have online shops with a not so common formula in this country (like mixing collection clothing with unique vintage pieces) and why not saying with an enormous selection of clothing. Is nice they feel in the mood of doing such things like this... I only have to say Thanks a lot and enjoy the edit!!
