Long gone are the days where graffiti is viewed only as vandalism, carried out by young troublemakers or criminals. Street art has taken over cities around the globe and we could not be more excited about it! After all, what could be better than giant, colorful murals turning otherwise grimy parts of a city into gorgeous pieces of art? We love the ability of street art to stir the pot a little, add to political dialogue and express the hopes, fears, and ideas of a population.
We have put together this Wanderlist of our top destinations to see awesome street art, hoping to inspire you to check out the free art galleries displayed on city walls. That said, expect this list to change over time, with explosions of colorful expression popping up in even the most remote corners of the world.
There you go, 20 cities where you are sure to be blown away by the number of fantastic pieces of art available to you, for free, out on the street! Think we missed somewhere? Let us know in the comments!
