And there’s even more to see; the motor zone will host the custom vehicle competitions: Bike Show and Car Show, where workshops throughout the country will present their latest work on motorcycles and cars from the world of Custom.
Also, under BAUM Fest, returns the always outstanding International Tattoo Convention of Barcelona, which comes back to the city in its XXII edition, more consolidated than ever and with a very outstanding offer, bringing together more than 300 professionals from different parts of the world willing to offer their art to anyone who decides to visit Fira Barcelona.
The International Tattoo Convention of Barcelona orders each year a promotional poster to one of the national tattoo artists with the intention of enhancing their work. Dani Martos, from Demon Tattoo of La Seu D’Urgell, is the Spanish artist responsible for creating the poster for this 23rd edition. Dani began his career as a carpenter, passionate about realism and, little by little, he changed his support, moving his drawings from wood to skin.
BAUM Fest is positioned as a must encounter for lovers of urban culture, a weekend in which activities and shows are happening at a fast pace under the hum of tattoo machines and the smell of ink. BAUM Fest is art in capital letters; it is music, dance, fashion, sport; it is what you breathe in the street, the smell of wheels. It is the sum of the best talents in urban art. BAUM Fest is city..
