Paseo de Gràcia in Barcelona became adorned with a curious image; a passionate kiss between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, just three days before Real Madrid and Barça meet in a potentially league-deciding clash at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Painted by Tvboy
The painting is the work of urban artist Tvboy, who is known for his controversial pieces. Here, the two La Liga stars embrace in a smooch, in a work entitled 'Love is blind'. Tvboy created the street art during the night as Wednesday morphed in to Thursday.
Antonio De Felipe resemblance
The painting bears a strong resemblance to a piece by graffiti artist Antonio De Felipe, also of the two players kissing, which was exhibited in Madrid in 2015.
