Street Art in Valencia

Valencia has plenty of street art. Whether you think about it in conventional terms, conjuring up the “graffiti” from Bristol’s edgiest neighbourhood, or in alternative terms, paradoxically appreciating Valencia’s vast (and painstakingly designed) Arts and Sciences complex, or whether you confuse yourself with the labels since street art is supposed to be edgy and conventional is supposed to be…

Enough, already. I think too much.

For me, street art is something I see that makes me go “wow” as I walk around a place. Applying such stringent criteria, here’s some street art I’d like to share with you from the city of Valencia:

@Melvin – agreed!
@Jimmy – Thanks – and perhaps I will get to see some Petrol Art soon?
@ciki – Valencia is SUCH a striking city – but I don’t want to mislead you. There’s also a charming, traditional old town as well!
