The Italian artist Riccardo Guasco created a extraordinary series of paintings while in an apartment in Barcelona, Spain. During seven days, Guasco painted images of distracted people eating at a tapas bar on canvases.

These art pieces are incredible because they capture the moment and represent it in a very Spanish style of art: cubism. Like a Pablo Picasso’s masterpiece, Guasco’s artwork is filled with geometric and cubist shapes. Also, by using the characteristic colors of the Mediterranean—red, yellow, brown and oranges—the painter successfully translates the warmness of Barcelona bars.  

The candid series by Riccardo Guasco shows the lives people in one of the most exciting and cultural cities of the world. Stats for Spontaneous Spanish Paintings Trending: Older & Mild
