- BAETULONA PROJECT
Baetulona is a project by Brrothers who invited 100 studios and artists to take part in celebrating the history of Badalona city. The idea is to create a printed canvas 100 meters long and a book that will tell a graphic story by showing 100 most important moments in the history of Badalona.
"The project was launched to Badalonas city hall within the framework of Catalan Culture Capital which the city hosts during 2010. We meant to create a 100 meters canvas in which the most important hundred historical moments of the city would be represented. We also wanted 100 main studios in graphic design and illustration from all around the world to perform that work." [more info at blog.baetulona.cat]
