Javier de Riba’s patterned floors establish vibrant gathering spaces.

Javier de Riba’s patterned floors establish vibrant gathering spaces for public use.



Catalan artist Javier de Riba brings the cosiness of home outdoors with his ongoing Floors Project. Made possible with the help of the local community, the collaborative endeavour involves painting a specially designed motif onto the concrete or pavers that line walkways and city squares.


Each intervention serves several purposes, including adding colour to an otherwise grey setting, connecting locals to the artist and each other through art making, and establishing a welcoming gathering space during an urban environment.


De Riba has completed five of the carpets so far, four in Spain and one in Shenzen, China. He’s traveling to Breda, The Netherlands, this June to collaborate with Blind Walls Gallery on the largest work yet, which will span approximately 400 square feet.
