The Street Art of 2017

2017 has been the year of admiring street art for me. I am constantly amazed at the level of beautiful and creative work on display across walls and surfaces everywhere I travel, as well as at home. From bold political statements to visiual colour bombs, there is something very captivating about a well-executed piece of street art.

Work that would have once been seen as vandalism is now being celebrated, most notably across social media. My own Instagram feed is bursting with images of urban art, I get so excited when I find a new piece that I automatically reach for my camera to capture it. I think part of it’s charm is that you never know when each one will be painted over or replaced, dissapearing forever.

So with that in mind, here are some of my favourite pieces of street art that I have found during my travels in 2017. I hope you enjoy.
