Hi Fin DAC, great to meet you . I’m really pleased you’ve accepted this interview for StreetArt360. I’m a great fan of your art and I feel you’re probably at the origin of my growing passion for urban art. I fell in love a few years ago with your geisha stencil under Vitry-Sur-Seine Train Station […]
A Brexit-inspired mural by Banksy showing a metalworker chipping away at a star on the EU flag has appeared in Dover. The artwork emerged overnight on the Castle Amusements building near the ferry terminal, which connects the UK with mainland Europe.
Rogue-one is a street artist from Glasgow in Scotland and also a very good friend. He has been mastering the art of spraypainting for over 20 years. His work ranges from stencils, characters, 3D artworks, canvases and to large scale productions. He’s by now one of the most famous and talented street artist in Europe. […]
I have always enjoyed a good street art walk. Murals and sidewalk art have become extensive, massive canvases to showcase local artists and get up close and personal with art. This summer I will be hitting more mural walks. I was reading one of the people I follow on Twitter, Travels With a Kilt Blog, and a recent article caught my eye. It’s a great art walk in Glasgow and I will be following it this summer and adding some of my own discoveries.
Got one of those super saver early flight arrivals like I always get? It’s one of the best things to do when you just get to a city, especially if you are walking off the jet lag. Get a taste for the city you are exploring, grab coffee or tea on the way, walk a few hours, then have a meal. Great way to meet people.
Since I won’t be going until summer this year, I thought I would link you up with this article so if you happen to be going to Glasgow this spring, you should read this:
Planning on going to a city or two this spring summer that may have street art? Seek it out and take your own shots of this amazing public art form. Share them on Instagram or try a street art app that you can share with the world.
Just a tip: You will find many official street art tours. They cost money. You can find maps for free online and also some walking tours with local historians, a bit less money. If you have a budget, small tours with locals can be a blast as you can meet with others traveling and have great convo. But sometimes creating your own tour is great on the budget, look for Street Art Tour Maps online. There are apps online and phone apps for tours as well. Remember this will eat up your power and many places are charging money now in cafes to recharge your phone.
