Montreal – best city for Graffiti #2

DSC_7737b


According to the Huffington Post, 26 cities have been nominated to be the best cities to see street art and this way to be urban art friendly – Montreal is one of them and I totally agree as it is one of the cities I visited that I found very artistic and inspirational, like Melbourne or Berlin.

As it was my second visit to Montreal, I was looking forward to seeing new artwork on the walls and how some hoods I visited before had evolved since. It was incredible!! Montreal is more a ‘graffiti’ city – I mean there are a lot of huge murals painted rather than little street art pieces. I love street art, but I am definitely amazed by artists doing big-big pieces on cool buildings’ walls.

Montreal arrive in the 18th position in this rank, just after our beloved Paris. Paris is doing very well actually.

If you’re in the mood for traveling, these are the 26 cities you must add to your destinations list, right now:

1. Berlin, Germany: Done!
2. São Paulo, Brazil
3. Melbourne, Australia: Done!
4. Cape Town, South Africa
5. Moscow, Russia
6. Lisbon, Portugal: On our list for… soon!

9. Dublin, Ireland
10. London, United Kingdom: Done!
11. Santiago, Chile
12. Taipei, Taiwan
13. Bristol, United Kingdom: On our list for… soon!
14. New York City, New York: Done!
15. Mexico City, Mexico

    Montreal has always been a great city for street art and graffiti. When you comapre it to Toronto a huge city next province over it is night and day. Toronto has come a long way but montreal is way to advanced . A great city.
