One of the highlights of Burton’s itinerary was the Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi’s architectural masterpiece. Impressed by the interplay of color and light in this iconic monument, Burton expressed his admiration for the work of the famous Catalan architect.

In his own words, “The color and light of Gaudi’s work is very inspiring, no matter if you are a tourist, an artist, religious or not, it is beautiful and I am happy to be here because I am very inspired by this environment.”

But Burton’s visit did not stop there. He also had the opportunity to explore the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site, another architectural treasure of Barcelona that captivated his attention. These enriching experiences have left a lasting impression on Burton, who has found inspiration in the city’s cultural and artistic richness.

The exhibition “Tim Burton’s Labyrinth” is more than just a collection of artworks. For Burton, it represents a creative journey that reflects his thought process and his connection to his work. In the filmmaker’s words, “Every drawing you make is a part of you, an aspect of your brain, your psyche or your feelings.”

Through this immersive exhibition, visitors have the opportunity to enter Burton’s imaginative world and explore his most iconic films from a unique perspective.

Although the exhibition has made use of technology to create immersive environments, Burton has maintained a focus on the analog by combining his original sketches with handcrafted sets and sculptures.

The official opening of the exhibition was attended by prominent personalities, including the Mayor of Barcelona, Jaume Collboni, and local celebrities such as the illusionist Mago Pop and comedian Andreu Buenafuente.
