Having spent January brightening up Brixton with his colourful characters painted across a number of the areas shutters {photos here}, it would appear the UK street artist and illustrator Malarky has returned to Spain. The artist was recently in Madrid for the Persianas Libres Madrid which saw 100 shutters painted in downtown Madrid.{photos here}

Malarky has now returned to Barcelona where he has been busting out the colours and hitting up the vans of the city. Check some of the fresh photos the artist shared with us.

We expect there will be more goodness in the coming months and we suggest you keep an eye on the artists website. You should also have a look at the Subism site where Malarky has some work for sale.
