  1. This looks so fun! Always enjoy it when unattractive urban alleys and buildings have been transformed into colourful pieces of art!

    1. Same! Having a colourful mural on a boring building or an ugly alley totally brightens everything up and makes it better!

  2. These are stunning! I particularly like the black textured one. I feel like it’s not too often that you see an all black mural but it really works!

    1. So true, it’s definitely unique!

  3. All of these look stunning! You’re absolutely right about all of them being Instagram-worthy; the pictures look amazing. Which one is your favorite?

    1. So hard to choose! The underpass with all the murals was probably my favourite location. So many beautiful ones!

  4. I am a huge fan of street art and colour, so naturally, I loved these. Although I did giggle at the one that looks like the dancer is kicking you.

    1. Haha my husband thought it was funny too and did that on purpose when he took the photo lol.
