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.

Welcome to FrikiFish
An online magazine exploring art, creativity and other aspects of visual culture in Barcelona. You’ll find articles on emerging contemporary art and under-known artists, events and exhibitions, reviews and art news.
We love it all: arts and crafts, design, photography, ceramics, painting, installation art, performance, architecture, drawing, and street art.
We're especially interested in sharing creative concepts related to minorities and women in the arts as well as sustainable art practices, upcycling and the circular economy. We want to do everything we can to support a more balanced and viable future!
Please get in touch if you're interested in contributing a guest post!
We support the local Maker Movement
We believe there are too many shops selling mass-produced souvenirs in a city full of working artists. Our online artist directory supports local makers, helping to promote the vibrant creative culture in Barcelona. By keeping things small & local, we are able to establish relationships with the artists and bring you their personal stories and limited edition artwork.
If you're an artist looking to promote yourself and your art, please visit our offers for Barcelona Artists.
Our mission is to connect talented independent artists with art enthusiasts who value craft, quality and originality.
At FrikiFish we believe in helping artists make a living so they can continue inspiring the world. We work for—and with—our local community of makers to bring fine art into homes, offices and galleries.
We need your Support!
We hope to build and grow the FrikiFish project to provide more artwork and services to a greater public. If you're interested in supporting out artist-run imitative as a patron or an advertiser, please contact us or visit our Patreon Page.
For as little as a $1 per month you can help FrikiFish to support the arts in Barcelona!
