The town of Bozen is like a work of art itself. With its twisty turny cobblestone streets, you can go round and round in circles but you always end up back at the ice cream shop. In addition to some delightfully colourful buildings there were also some treasures painted, pasted, stuck or sprayed on the…
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 Woodstock, Cape Town, South Africa
Having already seen penguins, baboons, elephants, buffalo, warthogs, zebras, many types of antelope and one lion during our time in South Africa – we decided on our very last day it was time to hunt out some street art. Thanks to Juma’s art tours, I knew that Woodstock was the place to go. I wasn’t…

After two weeks of exploring the countryside, wilderness and seaside of the Western Cape and Eastern Cape regions, we had two quick days in Cape Town itself.

A little bit of Irish Art
Visiting Vancouver, Canada
Whoop, my first time in Canada! Although it was only a brief visit, thanks to my wonderful hosts we managed to fit in a lot. In addition to murals and sculptures, street art and graffiti I also came across some “street poetry” for the first time. It is somewhat poignant, but worth zooming in for…
Art & Tomatoes in Nashville, USA
They may call it the Music City, but Nashville is also rocking some pretty awesome street art. My awesome host drove me all over town showing me the colourful delights of Nashville, and sometimes finding new ones on the way. (May contain traces of tomatoes… Tomato Art Festival)
Good Vibes & Art in Asheville, USA
Roadtrip from Nashville to Asheville! A surprisingly awesome amount of street art for a small place, plus delicious craft beer, creative cocktails and hot bartenders to delight some of the other senses.
Cousins Cruising Chicago and a little bit of Rockport
Exploring the street art in Chicago was quite a special experience for me. Not only did I get to see some amazing art, but I also got to share my interest with my cousin. A lot of the larger pieces were very new from a recent street art festival in May, so they were new…
Going further afield in Houston, USA
On my next day in Houston I ventured further away (via Uber this time) to some unusual spots in the city, a little bit dodgy at times, but all part of the street art hunting experience. It was totally worth it though, I found some amazing art. …
Street art in Houston, USA
A new city, a new state and new streets to wander. With a bit of help from trusty google to guide me, I explored the Heights and beyond.
Last Chance in the Mission District, San Francisco
In my last weeks in San Francisco I was determined to find the art on every last corner, alley, wall and dodgy lane of The Mission!
