The Street Art of Poznan

No Waste Of Time - Street Art Posnan

After Dublin, Poznan in Poland seemed to be a bit of a tough cookie street-art-wise at first. But to err is human, isn’t it?

We can’t deny that it started off bumpy.

Until it found we were ready. Because Poznan does have some pretty epic graffiti, and while not all of it is hidden, you will have to think old-school and look – under the bridges! That cracked me up – it’s been ages since I have seen decent stuff below a bridge.

And it intends on keeping it: this year for example, the city hosted the Outer Spaces festival, where artists came to cover many walls with their creations:

In conclusion: Poznan totally deserved a street art post!

…spotted by Loz, by the way. Anyhue, folks, these were our street art findings in Poznan. We’d like to thank Kamil, who helped us find some of the works, and also the City of Poznan for hosting us – I’m looking forward to coming back already!
