World’s Best Street Art

With roving artists everywhere, it’s nearly impossible to choose the “best” cities for street art but there a few stand outs (that photograph wonderfully), so here we go…

It’s an Instagram world, we are just living in it. Or at least that’s what it feels like. The great thing about street art is it’s accessibility: sometimes a large scale display impossible to miss from JR or Shepard Fairy, or a small secret, like a Banksy hidden on a side street. Most any metropolis will lend to this artistic display, but here are a few standouts…

*USA: Specifically for our own backyard, NYC and Los Angeles are mural and graffiti giants, but don’t miss Detroit, Miami (Wynwood Arts district is amazing), Chicago, Philadelphia, Austin and Portland are a pretty sure bet!


Now that we have addressed the local, let’s look beyond our boarders.

  • Mexico City, Mexico
  • London or Bristol, United Kingdom
  • Prague, Czech Republic
  • Libson, Portugal
  • Lodz, Poland
  • Bogota, Colombia
  • Santiago or Valparaiso, Chile
  • Rio De Janeiro or Sao Paulo, Brazil
