The Journey To Barcelona

The journey to Barcelona made me change the way I think about the GRAFFITI DRONE project.
It happened after I followed the street in the area of El Raval & Poble Sec in Barcelona.
This story is about the history & the present of the graffiti scene in Barcelona & how it made me start
In the year 1975, with the death of Franco, the GRAFFITI scene in Barcelona prospered.
Barcelona became the graffiti capital of Europe.
Artists from all over the world came to take part in the scene.
In the early 90's the municipality of Barcelona decided to ban graffiti.They said it made tourists feel unsafe. 
Thet erased GRAFFITI from the walls and imposed fines on the offenders.
Now you can find GRAFFITI and STREET ART only on doors,windows & shatters.
Sometimes the municipality order art work from famous artists.
(Artist name:Sixe paredes)
There are laces where it is allwoed to do GRAFFITI.
Poble Sec Barcelona.
There is a phenomena of foreigners coming to Barcelona to do GRAFFITI.
They are called  "The Travelers".
While I was touring, I met & interviewed two interesting & known well street artists.
I told them about my GRAFFITI DRONE PROJECT & showed them this video.
They were excited & told me what they think.

It was then when I understood that it is all about the community.I got to this stage in the development thank to the help from many people that did it only because they liked the idea & wanted to take a part in it. I have to listen to the community to better understand the need and to make the right improvements.
For that I decided to establish the DrawnKnight community, that will be involved in the development of the GRAFFITI DRONE PROJECT and robotic digital street art tools.
