Javier de Riba is a Spanish artist and creative designer who was born in the Catalan city of Barcelona. He has worked for various agencies and studios in the role of Art Director, but currently works as part of the Reskate Arts & Crafts Collective, who develop graphics and communication projects with a focus on sustainability and humane treatment.

One of Javi’s on-going initiatives is to spray paint abandoned buildings, but not in the way you might imagine. Instead of working on the interior or exterior walls of the derelict buildings, Javi concentrates on the floors. Using spray paints and stencils he creates layered intricate geometric patterns, which resemble old tiled floors, as if part of the buildings history has been perfectly preserved through time.
