We are approaching the end of 2017, time to make a top five selection of the street art that I’ve spotted during my travels this year. There are so many styles and types of Street Art:  trashcreations, stencils or just the more known painted walls. I was thinking about this post a few days, and to be honest,it’s more difficult then expected. Numerous murals I’ve seen, so many beautiful creations and so difficult to pick 5 favorites. Which one is your favorite? Dare to share:).

  1. It’s a great collection. I understand how it would have been hard to choose. My favourite is definitely the bird, with the Mexican woman closely following.

    1. Thanks for sharing your opinion Alison:). You’ve travelled a lot too already… I am sure you can recommend me some nice places known for street art? Greets stef

  2. Hi Stef – My favorite is that collage bird in the first two shots, he looks jaunty, and like something that kids would enjoy, too.
    Best wishes for 2018, looking forward to whatever craziness you dig up! 🙂

  3. I love the Mexican mural, especially since mi familia come from Mexico! I wish you a Happy New Year, my Ostend friend! Has anyone mentioned you have epicanthic folds in your eyes like many northern Europeans? I don’t know if mine come from my Viking or Mexican side…

  4. This is actually my last day in Mexico City so I’m going to go out and look for some street art. I haven’t really seen so much here, although I haven’t looked for it either. Definitely like the woman in the last pic.

    1. Oh great, you are in Mexico City! Let me know if you went for some street art hunting,did you find any? You have been in the neighborhoods/ares I wrote about in my articles? Greets stef
