  • “Paisaje Barcelonés” expo by Veronika Rudez: Veronika Rudez, born in Sarajevo in 1980, is graduated in Fine Arts in the Emily Carr University of Art and Design of Vancouver, Canada. After graduation, she redirected her creativity from two-dimensional imagery to clothing and she built a successful career working in the film industry. In 2016, she moved to Barcelona and she decided to shift her focus back on painting.
    “My current paintings are based on everyday observations of life in Barcelona. During my three years living here I am constantly being reminded of the often unnoticed and unadvertised facet of this city, the architecture and its people. As we get more used to receiving filtered information and imagery through social media, I am compelled, more than ever to pay attention to the more intimate side of everyday realities.”
    Tonight at 20:30 at Artte, Muntaner 83C, metro Universidad (L1 and L2).
