Graffiti And Street Art In Gdansk, Poland.

Gdansk Street Art

I know, I know … another post about street art? What can I say? I have an addictive personality and when I’m passionate about something like I am about street art and graffiti, I just can’t help myself.

This time it’s street art and graffiti in Gdansk, Poland where I spent my Easter weekend.

Which one is your favorite? I personally like the “too much love” photo. Can you ever really have too much love?

I’ve also realized that I’ve built up quite the collection of street art in Poland! You can check out my photos from Krakow and Szczecin here.

    I watched a really good documentary the other day about street art/graffiti. It was about the Robbo/Banksy graffiti wars. Kind of interesting….

    Hmm, where did you watch the documentary? I’d love to check it out ..

    Hm… Too much love… certainly makes you stop and ponder.
    My brother is in med school in Gdansk and it´s about time for a visit. Thanks for the added inspiration.

    I love the ones of the elephants, but I find the toilet paper just one too funny.

    • Reply Cheryl Howard April 16, 2012 at 9:05 pm

      @Mel – I think both the toilet and toilet paper ones are funny. 😉

    I love the elephant! =)

    Love it! Had no idea that Poland was so rich in street art.
    Btw that documentary is “Exit through the gift shop”

      @Andrea – Cute right? 🙂

      @Roy – Head to Poland now. 😀

      OK, I’ve seen that then. Love that documentary!

    There certainly is a lot of talent in Gdansk! Some of them actually remind me of Banksy. Is there any stencil by him in the city? I am from Toronto, there is also quite a lot wonderful street art.

      @Kristina – thanks for the visit! There’s a great street art scene all across Europe. I never really bothered much with street art when I was in Toronto, will check it out sometime.

    Such eerily lovely photos! The 90210 made me laugh out loud. And elephants in Gdansk – perfect.

      @Ebe – Thank you. I like the 90210 one as well. And of course, elephants! 😉

    It’s amazing that street art can exist in such various forms. It really reflects the city’s atmosphere. I mean there’s a remarkable difference between Gdansk street art and, let’s say, Toronto street art. Toronto bursts with great works but they are becoming so precise and academic that they’ve almost lost their spontaneity. 90210 is hilarious! 🙂

      @Christie – Gdansk is a great city. I also love the 90210 one ..

    I love Poland…have only made it to Krakow, Warsaw, and Wroclaw so far, but Gdansk is really high on the list. Everywhere we’re bene has just had a really young and vibrant energy to it!

      Hey Katie – I am addicted to Poland and just can’t wait to go back! You’d love Gdansk and especially nearby, Sopot. Both cities are beautiful!
