Glasgow, Scotland, taken on March 12, 2016
This is perhaps my favourite piece of wall art out of all the ones I’ve found in Glasgow. It is stunningly beautiful and quite impressive as well, as I can’t imagine the amount of effort it took to accomplish this sort of art. The mural hunt certainly paid off!
Barcelona, Spain, taken on August 25, 2011
One of the coolest things I saw in Barcelona five years ago (has it already been five years?) was this huge mural. What a magnificent piece of art! I think I’d like to try to find this intersection when I revisit Barcelona this year and see if it’s still there 😉
Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, taken on November 11, 2013
Having lived in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium for a period of time, I became familiar with the various places where you could find wall art around the city. And there were many. This stretch of wall art was found in Place des Wallons, right by the student kots (student residences). It was a very surreal jungle of some sort, very bright and colourful. I gotta say I quite enjoyed walking by this huge mural to and from work every day. (Click here to read my dedicated post about wall art in Louvain-la-Neuve.)
The Floating Taxi, created by Glasgow’s local artist Rogue One, is a rather famous piece of wall art situated in the city centre. After failing to find it the first time, I finally found it today on Mitchell Street (not Mitchell Lane, where I went last time). A real taxi was passing by at the perfect time for me to take this photo, although it of course wasn’t floating like the one in the mural (those balloons remind me of the movie “Up”). There are supposedly lots of these murals scattered around Glasgow, many drawn by Rogue One. One of these days I will go on the “Mural Trail” – a real path – and find them all 😉
I pass by this “mural” everyday going to and leaving the lab, quite amusing. (By the way, this is the 100th picture and post, yay!)
