Lily Brik Is Romantic for Childhood Stories in Barcelona

Posted on November 13, 2018

Catalunya-based illustrator and muralist Lily Brik goes for the romantic, the emotional, and traditional language and imagery in her commercial work as well as on festival walls. Here in Barcelona she returns to some of the familiar fairy tale tropes that many a girl associates with the stories of her childhood. Uncritical in its sentiment, Ms Brik says that this is a deliberate decision to return back to a place of safety.

“Usually people paint during the childhood, but they forget about it once they grow up,” she says. “Luckily, it stayed in my mind. Painting has always been my favorite way to express myself, the way of explaining what I couldn’t say through words”.
