FrikiFish is a one-woman labor of love. Local artist Amelia Johannsen started this online magazine to share stories and knowledge about art, creative culture and emerging talent in and around Barcelona.
You can find articles on all kinds of creative expression: design, photography, ceramics, painting, sculpture, installation art, performance, architecture, music, drawing, street art, etc.
You are invited to explore and participate in the local creative scene that continues to bloom and diversify. We live in a melting pot of cultures and creative ideas. Let’s facilitate discovery and engagement among ourselves in order to support local talent and our artistic community.
Please get in touch if you're interested in contributing a guest post.

What is a Friki Fish?
It's you and me! Unique, vibrant creative souls....
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.
- Taken from "The Urban Dictionary"
Frikifish supports equality on all levels—we'd like to see more minorities and women in the arts.
