Stick No Bills
Palma has recently welcomed the opening of a new art gallery further expanding the city’s eclectic art and culture offering. In the heart of Palma's historic centre, Stick No Bills Posters have opened a European 'sister' flagship outlet to their Galle Fort-based Asia flagship. The British-run poster enterprise’s intimate gallery showcases beautifully framed museum-standard limited edition prints of their extensive vintage and retro travel poster collections. The images champion the golden eras of travel to the Islas Baleares and Ceylon in classic art-deco and mid-century modern style. www.sticknobillsonline.com
A ‘must-see’ for art enthusiasts, Miró Mallorca is a museum that honours the life and works of Catalan artist Joan Miró who spent the later part of his life living and working in Mallorca. Current exhibition ‘Miró, a wild spirit’ explores the roots of Miró’s work including primitive culture and popular art, Romanesque frescoes, Antoni Gaudí’s architecture, poetry, and his subsequent approach to American Abstract Expressionism and Oriental art. www.miromallorca.com
No trip to Palma would be complete without visiting Es Baluard; one of Spain’s most important museums of modern and contemporary art showcasing a collection of over 600 works of art, all linked to the Balearic Islands. Constructed in a former military fortress dating back to the 16th century, the museums architecture is as impressive as its collection of paintings, sculptures and drawings by 20th century artists such as Cezanne, Gauguin, Picasso, Barceló and Scully. https://www.esbaluard.org/en/
