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.
But it prepared us for a lot of politically motivated street art.
Okay, what else do you have to tell us, Poznan?
Guys, guys, easy: we can make this work! Let’s just be a bit more chilled… Like that thing below the doggy – looks funky! Have I seen that anywhere else?
See, now we’re talking! Any other repetitive schemes?
So little by little, Poznan let us in. It gave us funny:
…it gave us cool:
It tried to scare us.
Put us up with some classics.
And like a fly on the wall, it kept watching us.
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.
But there it was!
And the underpasses!
Yup, Poznan’s got it, no doubt.
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!
I mean, for god’s sake: THEY EVEN HAVE AN INVADER!!
…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!

you don’t mention the name of any of the streets where this art can be found.

Hey Jay! In our experience street art is so transient that providing directions goes out of date too quickly. So the idea of the article is to show the sort of thing that you might find as you wander around Poznan 🙂
