After a very emotional week at Pueblo Ingles I was ready for my Eurail adventure and the Spaniards told me Valencia was a pretty city and they were right but what struck me most was the street art.
It reminded me a lot of art in Buenos Aires.
Like with most people street art fascinates me in cities and I’m often disappointed when I find out that a city doesn’t have it. Maybe if I had seen it in Innsbruck, Austria I would have liked the city.
But in Spain it seems art of all kinds is celebrated and I see it on every street.
Much like in Buenos Aires where a paint company would sponsor the revitalisation of a neighborhood with street art. It’s really a smart tactics because once something painted, there is an unspoken code that other painters won’t touch it or tag it.
So you have your choice, have something interesting painted on your wall…
or leave it to vandals and end up with something like this…
