Palermo is a great place to find street art and graffiti with many works also relating to the city’s history and the mafia too, as Matt Fox-Tucker of BA Street Art discovered.
Ernest Zacharevic has painted some beautiful murals in George Town, the state capital of Penang in Malaysia. The Lithuanian street artist visited Penang in 2012 and has been back and forth to paint more than a dozen murals as part of the Mirrors George Town project. Matt from BA Street Art was in Penang and discovered how George Town is now on the map as much for its street art as for its colonial architecture and being a World Heritage Site.
Street artists Charquipunk and La Robot de Madera have painted a stunning series of murals in Valparaíso, Chile and also in Buenos Aires. They told BA Street Art about the amazing street art scene in Valpo and the inspiration behind their designs.
