img_9436I was counting the days for Swab 2016 opening, my favorite Art Fair in Barcelona,  an International fair that supports emergent art in the creation field, making the initiation easier through the participation of young artists with affordable works . It takes  place in an industrial space by the fountains in Montjuic, where ideas, trends, shapes, looks, words… bring a fresh pleasure to art and fashion surrounded by amazing views of Barcelona!

The idea is that it is available to all of us, not unattainable  to most of us!

Joaquin Diez-Cascon, architect, art collector and Swab founder, believes in breaking the elitist and hermetic idea that often surrounds the contemporary art scene, making it more accessible to the citizens.
