Perico Pastor, the illustrator of 'El Poblenou torna a ser nou'
Since 1999, the Catalan painter, draftsman and illustrator, Peric Pastor, has worked in his studio in the Poble Nou neighbourhood of Barcelona. Previously, he spent thirteen years living and working in New York, where he had his first exhibition in 1980.
The City Hall's Sala Ciutat is reinventing itself as a bookshop specialising in books on Barcelona and as a space for displaying works from the illustration sector. Books, city and illustrations are the three foundations of a project that is set to grow.
From the end of the eighteenth century until the mid twentieth century, Barcelona was witness to the golden age of the circus. As well as the many travelling circuses that visited the city, people could also enjoy the permanent show, the Circo Ecuestre Barcelonés.
