Up from under the boot

This image is one of several that have been popping up around Gràcia. They all seem to have a political message, but their most distinguishing feature is their size. All of them average the size of a small garage door. Because of their scale, they tend not to last as long as smaller pieces of art, and because of this I try to get as many shots as possible, even if it means interrupting the momentum of my morning runs. I’ve already posted one piece that occupied a wall near the Plaça del Sol, and this one can still be found near one of Gràcia’s most beautiful streets, Carrer Verdi. In the image we can see a group of people trying to lift themselves from under a rather oppressive piece of footwear which has become all too present one the streets of Catalunya and Spain as popular ire continues to rise.
