Street Art in Faro, Portugal

Street Art in Faro, Portugal

As soon as my train from Lisbon pulled into Faro Station, my eyes were drawn to a mass of colourful street art on the building across the road. The next day I was back, minus luggage, to take some photos.

Is it Art or Vandalism?

Althought some people view street art as vandalism, I believe it can give you an insight to local culture and brightens up some drab spots. I’ve enjoyed street art in Pisa and Leeds. Marcus picked some of his favourite street art in Berlin and Heather highlighted great street art in Europe.

What’s your opinion of street art?

    I share Rick Steves’ sentiment about this kind of art and believe that it’s “some people’s way of saying they care.” Seeing it all over when I lived in Berlin for three months was such a pleasure and my husband and I even had an apartment above a street art supply shop. I miss it now that I’m back in the States but look forward to making new discoveries when I’m back overseas and in more metropolitan areas.

    I find street art fascinating and these photos are most interesting. When I go to Liepaja I shall take some images of the street art there and post them.
