Rabbits in the pink city of Toulouse

Toulouse, the pink city! With a little bit of wandering, wine & cheese (plus a lot of help from this fantastic website) we came across all kinds of painted wonders. Keep an eye out for the rabbit… the most ubiquitous stencil in Toulouse. Such a great way to beautify a construction site! Rue Gramat was a…

Exploring the streets of Paris

Another trip to Paris, another chance to wander the streets and hunt out space invaders, gzup’s octopi, dancing girls, and all the interesting stencils and paste-ups adorning the beige buildings of this fascinating city.          

Garda Graffiti

Wandering among vineyards and tiny villages I didn’t see much street art during our speedy weekend trip to Lake Garda, but as usual I was keeping an eye out. I was pleased to spot a few pieces of graffiti so Lake Garda at least qualifies for a mention here. Coolest caravan in town…   Down…

A smattering of graffiti in snowy France

I was surprised to spot a few bit of graffiti and street art while visiting a friend for an Easter snowboarding weekend. A few pieces of artwork adorning the Saint-Jean-d’Aulps Graffiti on the slopes!   This isn’t particularly great, but this was on our way home when we stopped in “Anthy.” So it’s worth preserving…

Hi-de-hi from Heidelberg

I finally made it to Heidelberg, it’s been on my “to do” list for years. I was treated to plenty of railway graffiti views during the train ride there from Munich and thanks to a helpful website I was also able to find some hot spots of spraying in this beautiful city. We also happened…

More Vienna and the colourful canal

After seeing some of the canal by night it was great to go back the following morning and see even more in the daylight (though unfortunately not SUNlight). As well as the massive walls and paintings there are lots of little stencils and stickers if you look closer. I started noticing lots of pieces by…

Vienna and the Donaukanal by night

With just a short amount of free time in Vienna I was thrilled to be able to get a glimpse of the street art scene by exploring up and down the Donaukanal (Danube Canal) by night and by day (well, a freezing cold and wet morning). The art of the walls seemed to stretch further…

Paris and my first “Street Art Tour”

So much fun discovering even more street art with my sister on this Paris trip. It felt a  bit strange to join an organised tour to see art on the street, but it was worth it. With a knowledge guide I certainly got many insights that I would not normally get and with not much…

Naples, night and day, pizza and art

Next stop for my sister and I was Naples in Italy. We came across an amazing street full of graffiti and art, but my poor old phone could not handle the poor light at night, so I don’t have much to show for it. But I did get a couple of great street signs and…

Discovering more in Geneva

Geneva was the first destination for my sister and I on our tiki-tour around Europe in 2015. In between the wine and cheese we managed a few great finds on the street. We also stumbled across an exhibition on Bains des Paquis where artists had been creating there works of art. Most were complete already,…
