Our Favourite Graffiti Cities in the World
Belfast, United Kingdom
Here's a hidden gem in Belfast that you may not know of: The Courtyard: Murals Square (The Duke of York) is a very secret open-air art museum that showcases many beautiful wall artwork and graffiti. There are also a few benches in the area - how thoughtful it is! It's such a wonderful place to enjoy the work and take a break from your exhausting day, too!
The East Side Gallery is a Berlin Wall memorial as well as an open-air art gallery of graffiti. Not only the wall itself has a strong historical background, but the graffiti has also given it a new chapter. The gallery is at 1316 metres long. You should take your time to walk along the Berlin Wall and look for your favourite graffiti there.
The Art Lane is located in the neighbourhood area of Sai Ying Pun in Hong Kong. It has probably the most graffiti you could ever find in one place in the city. The buildings and walls of Ki Ling Lane and Chung Ching Street have been covered by colourful street art - making the Art Lane one of the most colourful places in Hong Kong.
London, United Kingdom
The best place to look for incredible graffiti art in London is Shoreditch for sure. This artistic area is located near Shoreditch High Street, and it is very close to another local's favourite spot Brick Lane in London. You could find not only beautiful street art, but also trendy bars, artisan coffee shops and quality vintage stores in the neighbourhood.
The Lennon Wall is just as simple as a wall but filled with graffiti. What makes it special is the drawing or writing on the wall is constantly changing; the art is always referring to the latest local and global causes, such as the LGBT community, world peace, human rights and so on. Everyone is welcome to draw on the Lennon Wall, even if you are bad at drawing.
Does street art have to be found in street? No, not really. Stockholm metro has it proven. The underground stations in Stockholm have their own unique graffiti street art design. Each stop will absolutely give you a fresh look - some are bright and colourful; some are dark and mysterious, just like the one we've found in Tekniska Hogskolan Metro Station.
