“Art as a collective message” - Untitled Barcelona

Untitled Barcelona is brought to life in 2013, the brainchild of artist and designer Gisselle Morales. Untitled Barcelona is a highly conceptual and exclusive label, each piece is unique and handmade. We focus primarily on creating handbags with original painted canvas, natural leathers and cotton. These canvases are an integral part in the conceptualization and realization of the bags, as they are authentic works of art that several contemporary artists produce exclusively for us. The acrylic paintings are treated with a strong varnish to extend their life and function; however they are delicate pieces and must be treated with love and care. Untitled Barcelona is characterized by the combination of colors and textures, and this distinguishing quality becomes the main feature of our visual language. Combining art with a daily handbag comes from the need to make art design and to put art on the streets so it can have its own transformation. Why must art be enclosed behind the walls of museums and galleries?
