Gaudi's Casa Batllo Illustrated Art Print
Gaudi's Casa Batllo: A Special Edition Print.
One of my favourite Gaudi buildings is the Casa Batllo.
Probably the strangest residential buildings in Europe, this is Gaudí at his hallucinatory best. The facade, sprinkled with bits of blue, mauve and green tiles and studded with wave-shaped window frames and balconies, rises to an uneven blue-tiled roof with a solitary tower.
The balconies look like the bony jaws of some strange beast and the roof represents Sant Jordi (St George) and the dragon. Even the roof was built to look like the shape of an animal’s back, with shiny scales – the 'spine' changes colour as you walk around. If you stare long enough at the building, it seems almost to be a living being.
Everything swirls: the ceiling is twisted into a vortex around its sunlike lamp; the doors, window and skylights are dreamy waves of wood and coloured glass. The same themes continue in the other rooms and covered terrace.
This inspired a striking piece of graphic artwork to bring any room to life!
I had great fun sketching various Gaudi buildings, on my vacation... I have shared some of them in the last photo.
