Belgrade has an undercurrent of rebelliousness - from its underground nightclubs to guerrilla street art that pops up everywhere. And it has something to say. Artists have revitalised their post-socialist architecture and infused the entire city with art and colour.

To anyone who is even remotely into street art, Banksy is a name that has been etched in the memory forever. However, there is more to London street art than that one artist. Shoreditch, in the heart of the trendy East End of London, has become synonymous with the UK street art scene, attracting visitors from all over the world.


Delhi’s affair with art and culture can be spotted easily while strolling through the bylanes of the city. While the magnificent Mughal architecture is spread across the city, there are small, quaint walls with murals adorning them. As the city heads towards winters, early morning or late evening strolls are marked on everybody’s to do list. Whether a native or not, everybody shares a bond with Delhi’s rich cultural history. And explore and enhance this further we suggest a stroll through Delhi’s Lodhi colony where each wall has a story of its own to tell.

Dubbed as the graffiti Mecca of the urban art world, Berlin boasts this title with pride and merit. Many would tell you that street art culture began here with the graffiti on the Berlin Wall. Try a walking street art tour when here.

 Famous suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst portrayed with Manchester's Queen Bee. This was part of 50 Windows of Creativity art trail during the lockdown.

Magnificent large-scale murals make a walk through this neighborhood an enchanting experience. If your art craving is still not satisfied, fret not. Manchester is a treasure trove of art. 

If you should ever want to do a world tour following the best street art and murals, Mexico City will have to be on your itinerary. With artworks on virtually every corner, the city is a have of street art. A great guide to the plethora of artworks would be the project, The Art of Dressing to Match by Mexican fashion designer Melania Chavarría.
