Along with having some cool indoor art museums, Prishtina thrives in being its own outdoor art museum. Be sure that you will find some colours bursting through the most unexpected places, whether murals, monuments, or even streets.
These past few years, it has been amazing to see how outdoor electrical power boxes have become the new canvases. I still remember seeing one for the first time; it was Picasso’s Guernica painted on a box located in the main square. I had struggled to paint it back when my art teacher had asked us to do it in middle school, so I stood there for minutes on end and just stared in awe at the beautiful execution of this art piece (in a random power box!!!) and then, of course, took a photo of it.
Picasso’s Guernica is not the only notable one, there’s Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss, one of Monet’s works, and many more. Although there are a lot of famous paintings, there are many others that the artists took liberty with, through which they expressed their own creativity. In my opinion, they are just as striking to watch. That’s precisely why embarking on a treasure hunt for these art boxes in Prishtina is one of the most fulfilling activities you can do. You can count how many of them you find and take a photo with each of them to commemorate the adventure. I, personally, do this every day!
