There is something liberating in street art – not only for the artist but also for the viewer. It challenges expectations and forces you to see the environment in which it is displayed in a whole new way. Where buildings and streets were once grey and drab, they are brought to life with vivid colours and imagination. It is like being in a whole new place. You can find street art anywhere in Istanbul. On the European side, some of the more creative designs can be seen in the neighbourhoods of Taksim, Sishane and Karakoy. On the Asian side, you want to head to the districts of Kadikoy and Moda – not only for the street art, but also for the coffee 🙂
