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…
A touch of art in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, South Africa
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. We dedicated half a day to a Township Tour, an amazing opportunity to be guided safely through some parts of Cape Town’s largest township. This included a chance…
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

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!
More SoMa and Mission, San Francisco
Revisiting some known spots and discovering some new ones! Oddjob… and the delightful Standing Room Only mixology bar. We used to pass this building almost every day. I did not discover the cocktails of delight inside until my last weeks in SF. http://oddjobsf.com/#sro-section
More San Francisco in the Sun
A friend came to visit, so naturally we had to explore some of the cool street art spots around the different areas in San Francisco. Not many photos though… I love visiting, viewing and sharing street art with friends, but when it comes to taking photos I really enjoy being on my own so I…
First Explorations in San Francisco, California
The streets of San Francisco are a delight to explore. An explosion of colours, styles and messages to be shared. It seriously does cost an arm and a leg Haight Ashbury
