As passionate street art fans, Valencia is something similar to our Mecca. The Spanish city is teeming with unique graffiti and murals, which makes for fascinating sightseeing throughout local neighborhoods!

  1. Wow, beautiful. We really have to get to Valencia, I’ve heard so many good things. San Francisco is probably still our favourite city for street art.

  2. I love street art! Banksy’s stuff is really cool – have you seen the movie “Exit Through the Gift Shop”? Apparently, it’s a prank, but gives a good glimpse of Banky’s and Shepard Fairey’s work.

    I’d love to visit Valencia, but of the places I have been, I’d have to say the Berlin Wall is the coolest set of street art – now, a lot of the work is legally sponsored, so I hope that counts.

    1. We haven’t seen the movie yet but we desperately want to!! We are huge Banksy fans and when we lived in London, we would always run to see his newest pieces before the council would paint them over. Shepard Fairey is also fantastic. I can’t wait to go back to Berlin to check out some street art there – the East Side Gallery looks amazing and I can’t believe I haven’t been there yet, being from Germany 😀

    1. Thanks guys! I guess many of the pieces that we saw aren’t there anymore now, replaced by new graffiti 🙂 Enjoy being ‘home’ for a while, it must be good after such a long time in South America!!

  3. Nice memories! For Valencia, I suggest Escif with his stop motion falling car and Blu with his Moses, together on a place (I forgot the name…) my favorites!

  4. Coming back to Escif and Blu, the two impressive murals to see are located on Plaça de Tossal in the heart of El Carmen,
    the one on the left is from Escif, the one on the right showing Moses is from the hands of the Italian street artist Blu.
