Being a big graffiti and street art fan I like to discover walls, outdoor galleries and urban paintings of Ljubljana. Many spots around the city show true art pieces made by Slovenian and foreign artists who have left their mark on urban spaces in various corners of Ljubljana. Many crews exist but one group definitely stands out.
It’s 1107 klan from Šiška quarter that definitely knows the scene. 1107 graffiti artists (1107 is the post number of the Ljubljana – Šiška district) have been very active on the graffiti and street art scene for the last few years. They still keep on doing good and improved work. They have sprayed the walls at Metelkova, Rog and you can find 1107 stylized tags all around the city centre. One of the most noticeable urban galleries they spray and overpaint again and again is the pedestrian underpass in Šiška which they, being locals, practically ‘own’. If you are a graffiti and street art lover this place full of colourful murals, which changes all the time, is definitely worth seeing and taking a walk through this underpass under the Celovška street is a must.
By the way, if you like the 1107 Klan work, you should also check out the walls of the Rog factory and Metelkova mesto. They overpaint it with new works very often. And don’t even forget the UAUU gallery they run. Another cool place to visit.
