Now that I have already said it in my book, it isn’t a secret wish anymore. I would actually love to be a street art curator in an alternate life. I am not sure if there is a profession like that but I would love to. What fun it would be to be paid to travel round the world looking for creative walls? To some extent, I do that even now as a travel writer. Street Art whispers excitement to my belly. I really get excited when I see the walls oozing with colors. Trust me, a lot of hard work and creativity goes in there. So today, I am gonna introduce you to a city which really took me by surprise. When my friend went ga-ga about the street art of Brussels, I wondered what would be so different. There would be huge artistic murals, what else. But I would like to eat my own words because when I saw these huge comic strips right in the middle of the city, I was stunned! Brussels definitely has one-of-its-kind wall art and art lovers will know why. If you are interested too, why don’t you scroll my article and get introduced to the street art of Brussels? The best part is that you can do this virtual street art tour of Brussels from the comforts of your abode. How about visiting the Atomium, the Symbol of Brussels as well?
The unmissable street art of Brussels.
While Berlin is definitely the mecca of urban street art, Brussels has one of the best comic art on its wall, all around the city. Trust me, the Belgian capital is an open street art gallery. There are huge works of art spread all around the city. I was there last year, during this time of the season and in this post I have tried to capture some of the best of the works. I am sure a whole lot of new art will emerge with the moments of pandemic and lockdown life but its never a bad idea to reminisce old memories. These works will always remind me of the amazing Euro trip that I did in 2019.
This post is all about my personal passion for street art, my personal experiences in Brussels and all that I stumbled during my walking trips there. I stayed there for more than 2 weeks. While I was in Belgium, I also travelled to Antwerp, Ghent, Giethoorn in Netherlands, Vienna in Austria, Malta and more.
