THE GUIDE

Angel Granero


Angel Granero is a Barcelona based art specialist passionate about Modern & Contemporary art. He lived and worked in different countries where he has been a gallerist, an exhibition curator, an art
consultant and right now proudly contributes to build some important art collections.
Over his nearly twenty five years of professional career, Angel devoted many to representational
art. Gradually he has witnessed abstraction and conceptualism travel from the outermost to the
center of his interest before becoming his favourite forms of art.


THE SCENE

Fundació Joan Miró

The Barcelona Gallery marketplace is made up of approximately half a hundred galleries, offering a wide range of artwork by local visual artists with often an international reputation. Some of these artists, such as Antoni Tapies or Jaume Plensa, have been serious contributors to important world art collections and contemporary art museums. In recent years and mostly encouraged by upscale tourism, its distinguished residents, Michelin starred chefs
or Gaudi's modernist architecture, Barcelona has developed into an outstanding vacation destination with an increasing demand for stylish design, forward looking homes and Modern & Contemporary art.
Amidst the various participants of this recently developed contemporary art scene stand prominently public art museums and private art Foundations such as MACBA, Fundació Mapfre, Fundació Caixa Forum or Fundació Miró, closely followed by renowned local art galleries and some international ones such as Marlborough Gallery.

ANGEL'S top 5

Barcelona has a rich cultural heritage and is today an important cultural centre and a major tourist destination. Among all the interesting tourist attractions for the cultured visitor arefamously known monuments, some of them even featured by UNESCO as worldheritage sites such as Palau de la Musica, Hospital de la Santa Creu-Sant Pau and thearchitectural works by Antoni Gaudi namely Parc Güell, Palau Güell, Casa Milà, Casa Vicens, La Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo and the Crypt in Colonia Guell. 

Although these featured sites are some of the most coveted by tourists and visitors in the world and should not be missed, you are not done yet with fully experiencing Barcelona unless you have also visited or tried some of the following recommendations which, in my honest opinion, should be part of the experience.
