What is a Friki Fish?

It's you and me! Unique, vibrant creative souls....

friki

Noun  /ˈfɾiki/  (plural frikis)
Borrowed from English freaky.

Spanish word that defines: freak, weirdo, geek, nerd, guru, otaku, mangaka, comic liker, book reader, videogame player, film lover and any other person whose likings are not cars, chicks and soccer. You may only like movies, but as a "friki" you like all the other stuff, look weird or act clumsy.

fellow, person
"an odd fish"

FrikiFish is an online magazine exploring art, creative culture and emerging talent in Barcelona.

We invite our readers inside Barcelona's creative scene—facilitating engagement among creatives and sharing a myriad of projects by local talent. We support local artists and makers in order to strengthen and diversify a vibrant creative culture for everyone to enjoy.

You can find articles on contemporary art, under-known artists, modern makers, events and exhibitions, reviews and creative news. We love all kinds of creative expression: design, photography, ceramics, painting, sculpture, installation art, performance, architecture, drawing, street art, etc.

Please get in touch if you're interested in contributing a guest post.

Values

Frikifish is a proponent of equality—we'd like to see more minorities and women in the arts.

FrikiFish encourages sustainable art practices, upcycling and the circular economy. We want to do everything we can to support a more balanced and viable future.

We support local Artists & Makers

We believe there are too many shops selling mass-produced souvenirs in a city full of working artists. We want to connect the talented independent artists with art enthusiasts who value craft, quality and originality.

>>> For creatives looking to promote a project please visit our page for Barcelona Artists.
