This is the John Lennon Wall in Prague, Czech Republic. This lovely graffiti wall is a loving memorial to Lennon. People come and leave messages, names, and art. The wall is an awesome group art project, and it’s constantly changing, which is also really cool. This place is really fun, and if you are just looking for a short outing in Prague this is a good place to go. The only thing is, it’s pretty darn hard to find. We heard about it from this wonderful map; the Use It Europe map for Prague (which has a LOT of cool stuff) but we still had trouble finding it. We actually had a local guy help us out, so I suggest if you are looking for this place you should get really specific directions. Also, bring your paint and your pens and contribute to the wall!

This is a photograph of some graffiti that we found while wandering around some back streets in a small neighborhood of Rome, Italy. Graffiti like this, the more artsy kind rather than just tagging, was not something that we saw a lot of in Rome, or Florence. This piece, I thought, was particularly beautiful, and it really stood out in the tiny neighborhood area. I’m pretty sure that this artist is one that we saw while we were in London too, I believe the square at the bottom right is the signature.

These works of art are graffiti pieces found in Berlin, Germany. These picture were taken from an above ground train we were on. Like London, Berlin is a good place to look for Graffiti in Europe. These pieces stuck out particularly, the two large birds (I believe) were done by a fairly prominent graffiti artist who has a few pieces in London, including the giant heron featured in the first art in the streets post. And the other piece looks like it could be Banksy or possibly Banksy inspired.

Here is a compilation of pictures I took of street art found in London’s East End. This area is really great for a young crowd; there are record shops, vintage markets, thrift stores, and lots of restaurants. The area is a lot of fun, we went on an Undiscovered London tour of the area, just to get a view of a bit of a different side, one sort of apart from the main sight seeing places in London. This area is also home to a multitude (as you can see here) of street art pieces. The pieces are everywhere, some on massive building sides, others in doorways. Just make sure you look around. If you’re in the area you can drop by Rough Trade record shop too; they have very good coffee and lots of books and music.

Unwritten

Graffiti in Naples, Italy. The future is unwritten/ non-scripted. I don't have any knowledge about what it means in the context of Italian graffiti or if it has a specific meaning in relation to something else there, I just like the idea of an unwritten life.
