Street Art Around the World: Vienna

If you know me, you know I love street art. I have loved it for as long as I can remember. My phase of graffiti writing and tagging walls quickly ended (is a few years quick?) once I realized the repercussions of getting caught, although I still am convinced I may have been a street artist in my past life.

So now I just photograph the street art and graffiti in as many cities as I can.

I am by no means a professional photographer nor do I always know much about the artists and artwork that I will be sharing. I just want to share the images that have moved me in cities I’ve been around the world. After all, street art can teach you a lot about a city. 

While some cities’ art scenes are impossible to avoid, it is not always easy to find the best spots for street art as a tourist especially in a city like Vienna. If it wasn’t for our friend who has lived in Vienna for 4 years, I doubt I would have seen any street art other than the psychedelic mural at Naschmarkt!

Of course you can find a weiner on the wall in Vienna! But seriously, have you tried their cheese stuffed weiners? Life changing.

Hope you enjoyed my first post featuring Street Art from Around the World. Stay tuned for more!
