Gaudi, God and Greenygrey: Barcelona goes 4G

Hi, it’s Baron Wolfman, still head honcho of Greenygrey Arts, in the absence of Andy Wolfhol. Being head honcho has its perks, as I found out last week, when I joined Team GG in Barcelona. Barcelona is famous for its Modernisme arts, which were led by Antoni Gaudi around 1890-1910.

Antoni Gaudi’s Spirit and Nature

There are many houses, roofs and parks featuring the surviving artwork. The most famous of all, Gaudi’s massive La Sagrada Familia cathedral, is still under construction.

Gaudi mixed spirit with nature, with his artwork featuring distinctive curves, as he believed there were no straight lines in nature. Don’t know if that fits in with Folding Mirror poetry, but I think the spirit and nature fits in with Greenygrey. So I thought I’d combine some Barcelona Modernisme with Barcelona Greenygrey:
