Urban Art – When sidewalks become galleries

Graffiti, Street Art, Urban Art…? Don’t even think about it! I’m not getting involved in the discussion, I’m just loving it when grey cities turn into something better, something more colorful, something joyful that brightens your day. Well, I’m also aware of the fact that after all it’s ART and with that, it’s just the same as with beauty: it lies in the eye of the beholder.

The photo here was taken at the Donaukanal next to Spittelau, anyone interested in biking or walking down that recreation canal, I suggest starting here, or even further north. Once you get to Schwedenplatz, in summer you can rest in one of the many beach bars along the canal (check out my article about the area here!), coffee shops, restaurants or indoor bars around there. 

But as this street art map shows, there are many more spots for you to enjoy the beautified grey in Vienna. Another tip on where to get updates on Urban Art in the city is bob.marlis who is probably the best graffiti detective in Vienna 😉 or Vienna Murals’ site on the famous blue book.

The list found here will of course never be complete, a quick look at the dedicated Flickr page or my Instagram is evidence of countless more burner pieces all over Vienna.
