My Love For Street Art
I’m not exactly sure when my love for street art began. It might have been when I moved to Berlin or when I watched Exit Through The Gift Shop with friends at a local park this summer. I suddenly started to notice street art wherever I went, like in Cologne’s Belgian quarter last month and yesterday in Szczecin, Poland.
Poland’s largest sea port is a cute little city full of beautiful architecture, nice restaurants and really friendly people. Only a two hour train ride away from Berlin, I thought it would be a great way to spend the day with a visiting friend from Toronto. Not only would she spend a week in Germany’s greatest city (I’m obviously biased … ) but a day in Poland too!
As we walked around, we both took delight in finding the street art which seemed to be everywhere … on bridges, church walls, residential homes and even monuments.
Last but not least, my very favorite … “Cash Rules Everything Around Me.”
While you’d think that street art is more typical of a large liberal and creative city like Berlin, it was surprising to find it so prevalent in a lesser known smaller Polish city. Turns out that Szczecin has a Street Artists festival every July … I’d love to attend this next year! How about you?
